Background
 
Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death worldwide. In the Philippines, 28.3% (17.3 million) of the population aged 15 years old and over currently smoke tobacco (2009) Global Adult Tobacco Survey). In the same survey, 48.8% (29.8 million) allow smoking in their homes; and 39.6% were exposed to smoke in their homes daily. Exposure to second hand smoke was 55.3% in public transportation, 33.6% in restaurants, and 25.5% in government buildings. In response to this, the Philippine Ambulatory Pediatric Association developed a training module on brief advise for smoking cessation (BASiC) for child healthcare providers (HCP) for use with parents/guardians of pediatric patients at risk for second hand smoke
exposure, as well as with patient-smokers.
 
General Objective
 
To evaluate the impact of Brief Advise for Smoking Cessation Training on the clinical practice of healthcare advocates in the public and private sectors.
 
Specific Objectives
 
1. To evaluate self-perceived change in practice of the healthcare providers in terms of using the 5A’s in their clinical practice after the
training on brief advice
2. To evaluate importance of issues that prevent the healthcare provider to use the 5A’s in their clinical practice
3. To evaluate self-perceived confidence change regarding use of the 5 A’s in the practice of the healthcare providers after the training on brief advice
4. To obtain additional insights from selected trainees on their practice of the 5 A’s and on their involvement in tobacco cessation advocacy activities
