The 5 A's: Steps to Tobacco Intervention

Successful intervention begins with identifying users and appropriate interventions based upon the patient’s willingness to quit. The five major steps to intervention are the “5 A’s”: Ask, Advise, Assess, Assist, and Arrange.

Remember to:

1. Ask. Identify tobacco users at every visit.

2. Advise. Talk with patients about tobacco use and urge them to quit.

3. Assess. Determine if the patient is willing to make a quit attempt at this time.

4. Assist. Prescribe a medication unless contraindications exist.

5. Arrange. Arrange follow-up, including Fax-To-Quit Louisiana.
