Be Familiar With Smoking Cessation Meds for Patients With Cardiovascular Disease
You'll play a key role in helping patients with cardiovascular (CV) disease quit smoking.
Smoking is responsible for up to a third of deaths from CV disease.
Ask patients if they smoke when updating profiles...and notify your pharmacist if they say yes. The pharmacist can recommend counselling PLUS smoking cessation meds...the combo works better than either alone.
