U.S. Preventive Services Task Force
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force issued the following final recommendation on smoking cessation in adults, updating the 2009 recommendation. Note, in particular, the fourth statement below regarding electronic nicotine delivery systems.
The USPSTF recommends that:
1) Clinicians ask all adults about tobacco use, advise them to stop using tobacco, and provide behavioral interventions and U.S. FDA approved pharmacotherapy for cessation to adults who use tobacco. (A Grade recommendation)
2) Clinicians ask all pregnant women about tobacco use, advise them to stop using tobacco, and provide behavioral interventions for cessation to pregnant women who use tobacco. (A Grade recommendation)
The USPSTF concludes that:
3) The current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of pharmacotherapy interventions for tobacco cessation in pregnant women. (I Grade recommendation – insufficient evidence)
4) The current evidence is insufficient to recommend electronic nicotine delivery systems for tobacco cessation in adults, including pregnant women. The USPSTF recommends that clinicians direct patients who smoke tobacco to other cessation interventions with established effectiveness and safety (previously stated). (I Grade recommendation)
