MMWR Introduction

According to the article, “Tobacco Use and Cessation Counseling—Global Health Professionals Survey Pilot Study, 10 Countries, 2005,” released in the May 27, 2005, issue of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) journal, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, the majority (72%–99%) of dental, medical, nursing and pharmacy students from 10 countries believe they should receive training in counseling patients to quit smoking. Unfortunately, only a small percentage (5%–37%) say they are receiving formal training to do that. The report is collaboration between CDC, the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA).
