Engaging Mississippi’s Pediatricians Treatment
This webinar is sponsored by the Mississippi Chapter AAP with funding from the Mississippi State Department of Health’s Office of Tobacco Control
A comprehensive, straightforward approach
to changing the current climate surrounding
tobacco use and smoke exposure in children.
Pediatricians are uniquely positioned to assist patients and families with tobacco-use prevention and treatment.
The essential first step is understanding the
nature and extent of tobacco use and SHS exposure
(previous webinar topic)
Counseling for patients AND family members to avoid SHS and to cease tobacco use
Advocate for policies to protect children from SHS
Eliminate tobacco from the media, public places, and home
There is NO safe way to use tobacco
There is NO safe level of SHS
Financial and political resources of individuals, organizations, and government should be used to support tobacco control
Encourage and support employees to quit
Use office systems that promote prevention and cessation. For example : Use paper or EMR systems that require documentation of tobacco use and SHS status
Eliminate ALL forms of tobacco advertising in office (including magazines in lobby)
Do not accept funding from the tobacco industry
Ask about and document tobacco use and SHS exposure at ALL encounters (sick, well, prenatal, nursery visits, inpatients)
Know the harms of tobacco use and SHS and educate patients and families
Advocate for tobacco-free homes, cars, schools, child-care programs, playgrounds, and other places kids go
Advise all families to make home and cars tobacco free. Urge all users to quit.
Counsel all parents on how to delivery anti-tobacco messages and ways to discuss addictive nature of nicotine
Code for tobacco use and SHS exposure and bill for treatment
Emphasize significant health harms of SHS when treating children with chronic diseases and health risks
Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death and illness in the United States.
Pediatricians and other clinicians who care for children are uniquely positioned to assist patients and families with prevention AND treatment.
Pediatricians and the AAP have key responsibilities in tobacco control and place a high priority on these goals for the health of children.

CDC – all heart disease patients should avoid exposure to secondhand smoke.
Eliminating smoking in indoor spaces fully protects nonsmokers from exposure to secondhand smoke. Separating smokers from nonsmokers, cleaning the air, and ventilating buildings cannot eliminate exposures of nonsmokers to secondhand smoke.
