  • Inpatient Tobacco Dependence Treatment Resources

    Developed as part of the NHSE project to deliver a suite of training materials to support the training of Treatment Dependence Advisors (TDAs) who work with patients hospitalised in both acute trusts, and in mental health trusts, these resources are being made available to you by the NCSCT because they support clinical practice.

    Inpatient Tobacco Dependence Treatment: Best Practices and Key Messages

    This document summarises best practice and provides key messages for tobacco dependence treatment in inpatient settings.

    These key messages were developed by national experts to assist with standardising the way we describe and treat tobacco dependence in the inpatient setting across trusts, and among partner organisations. The primary audience for these key messages is NHS trust leadership, clinical staff, and the trust tobacco dependence team. The key messages may also be useful for trust communications teams.

    NHS Standard Treatment Plan (STP) for Inpatient Tobacco Dependence

    This NHS Standard Treatment Plan (STP) for Inpatient Tobacco Dependence provides guidance to support delivery of the Inpatient Tobacco Dependence Treatment Care Bundles.

    The STP is designed to ensure patients receive a consistent and evidence-based tobacco dependence support that provides them with the best possible chance of having a smokefree hospital admission and a goal of long-term abstinence.

    The STP is structured around the three Tobacco Dependence Treatment Care Bundles:

    • Admission Care Bundle
    • Inpatient Care Bundle
    • Post-Discharge Care Bundle

    Each section of the STP begins with a clinical checklist and is followed by guidance on conducting an assessment and delivering tobacco dependence support.

    The checklists below are made available as a standalone document to aid implementation of the STP. COMING SOON!

    A feedback form can be found below so that NHS staff can make suggestions for improvements to the STP. COMING SOON!
