This menu explores the "gold standard" clinical practice guideline for the 5A's for smoking cessation. (1) Although the 5A's has been proven effective, patients often do not receive the intervention or only receive an incomplete version of it. (2) The Computer-Facilitated 5A's (CF-5A's) was created to address the problems of limited provider and staff time, lack of familiarity with cessation resources, and low provider confidence in providing behavioral counseling.
