Abstract:

Veterans with SCi/D who smoke also had other health problems. Providers offer counseling and medication, but often have difficulty following patients to arrange/provide support. Identifying other support methods such as telehealth, considering the use of combination cessation therapies, and addressing other health concerns (e.g., depression) may affect tobacco cessation in this population.
