A Practice Guide that supports providers in diverse contexts to start a converstaion with women about their smoking and the possibility of quitting. Draws largely from Motivational Interviewing – an evidence-based communication style to support change – to translate women-centred principles into practice.

A companion piece to this guide is under development: a compendium of facts and issues related to women and smoking for local, national and global audiences. Please also see BCCEWH work on women and tobacco at www.expectingtoquit.ca and www.coalescing-vc.org/virtualLearning/section4/default.htm
