ELECTRONIC SMOKING CESSATION DOCUMENTATION IN AN AMBULATORY CANCER CENTRE:   DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION

BACKGROUND

Smoking Cessation (SC) is beneficial following a cancer diagnosis, decreasing the risk of complications & increasing the effectiveness of treatments.  SC was developed as an interprofessional model in a large comprehensive cancer centre.  All healthcare providers (HCPs) received Peer to Peer training to offer brief interventions.

 Documentation tools used were
• Hardcopy
• Electronic
• Or a hybrid of both
• In some instances more than one documentation tool was used
 

Documentation of interventions was inconsistent amongst various HCP with no standard method for screening and identification of patients who use tobacco.

 Documentation of interventions ensures
•Awareness of patient smoking status
•Patient’s interest in SC
•Previous interventions from any HCP within the patient’s circle of care
 

Appropriate documentation is essential  for patient support through continuity in care.

 Drivers for Documentation
•What are the most successful programs?
•Electronic systems where everyone could access
•Radiation Therapy had MOSAIQ
 

Strategically everyone would go electronic

•How could this be leveraged?
 
Reporting to the provincial government agency required specific mandatory documentation data elements
