The Joint Commission's Tobacco Use Measures

On April 19th, NC Prevention Partners had the opportunity to talk with Nancy Lawler, Associate Project Director from The Joint Commission.  The discussion summarized the most recent information about draft measure set for screening and treating tobacco use, which has completed testing and development, and is being prepared for public release.

Ms. Lawler explained how some of the measures have changed as a result of the pilot testing process and reviewed next steps to give hospitals a better sense of when the measures will be available for hospital selection. For those who were unable to participate in the webinar, an archived version is available on the NC Prevention Partners website.
