Product Details

Most people are aware of the risks of smoking in relation to lung cancer, heart disease and pregnancy but ignorant of its many other dangers. Smoking – what all healthcare professionals need to know is based on many years of detailed research. It presents substantial evidence that smoking actually affects every organ system in the body and is instrumental in many diseases.


This book will enable a wide range of healthcare professionals (including general practitioners, nurses, surgeons, psychiatrists, dentists, physiotherapists, urologists, gastroenterologists, audiologists, ophthalmologists and dermatologists) to provide helpful, accurate advice and feedback to reduce smoking among their patients.


Preventative medicine is an increasing priority today, and programmes to reduce smoking (whether at the national level or aimed at the individual) have been shown to be effective – both in terms of improving patient outcomes and reducing health service expenditure. This book should therefore be required reading for all healthcare professionals.


Contents include:

  • The facts about smoking
  • Smoking cessation
  • How smoking affects the brain
  • How smoking affects the head and neck
  • How smoking affects the respiratory system
  • How smoking affects the cardiovascular system
