The CEASE team would like to thank all who have supported and funded CEASE: National Institutes of Health, the Flight Attendant Medical Research Institute, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the American Legacy Foundation. CEASE was developed in collaboration with the American Academy of Pediatrics Tobacco Consortium, the American Academy of Pediatrics Pediatric Research in Office Settings (PROS) network, Smoke Free Homes, other tobacco control experts and child healthcare clinicians across the country.

CEASE was originally adapted for child healthcare practices from the Massachusetts QuitWorks program. Developed in collaboration with Massachusetts health plans, Quitworks is a universally endorsed fax-referral program linking providers and their patients who smoke to the state's quitline and other treatment resources.

Major support for this website was provided by the Julius B. Richmond Center of Excellence, in partnership with grants from NIH.
