Clinical Talk | How to discuss smoking habits with your patients

Jon V.B. Gjelle

In this clinical talk, optometrist Jon Gjelle discusses the results of a recent survey (267 respondents) with optometrist Gerrie Oosthuizen (the Netherlands) and general practitioner Dr Jørn Ossum (Norway). One of the outcomes of the survey was that only 9% of optometrists in the Northern European region routinely ask their patients about their smoking habits.

You’ll learn more about the survey results, why it’s so important to start talking about smoking behaviour with your patients and get practical tips that you can take to your practice to get you started.
