Tobacco use remains the number-one preventable cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States and worldwide. So it’s important for providers to get involved. That’s where the QuitMedKit can help. The app was developed by Alexander V. Prokhorov, MD, PhD and Mario Luca, MS, at MD Anderson. It’s intended to assist healthcare providers in counseling and treatment of tobacco dependence. The app includes the evidence-based 5A’s approach, information on medications for cessation, tips on motivational interviewing, graphics to assist in cessation, and links to online resources.
