The New Zealand Guidelines for Helping People to Stop Smoking – Ministry of Health – 6 June 2014
“The New Zealand Guidelines for Helping People to Stop Smoking (the Guidelines) provide health care workers with advice they can use when dealing with people who smoke. These Guidelines replace the 2007 New Zealand Smoking Cessation Guidelines and are based on a recent review of the effectiveness and affordability of stop-smoking interventions.
These Guidelines remain structured around the ABC pathway, which was introduced in the 2007 Guidelines. However, the definitions of A, B and C (see below) have been improved to emphasise the importance of making an offer of cessation support and referring people who smoke to a stop-smoking service.”
