Inpatient Tobacco Treatment Service
All patients identified as tobacco users upon admission to Massachusetts General Hospital are automatically referred to our inpatient service. Certified tobacco treatment specialists visit tobacco users to help these patients manage their nicotine withdrawal symptoms while in the hospital. They also help patients to develop a post-discharge quit plan.
Professional Education Services
Nancy Rigotti, MD, and her team provide training and in-service education on current guidelines for evidence-based tobacco treatment to help individual clinicians and medical practices address tobacco use with their patients.
