It is with great pleasure that I deliver to you the first draft of, “Integration of Tobacco Cessation Medications in State and Provincial Quitlines: A Review of the Evidence and the Practice with Recommendations (2014 Update)
.” As you may know, this issue paper is published by NAQC as part of our ongoing Quality Improvement Initiative
and is the first of two 2014 UPDATES to existing issue papers that NAQC will publish this year. The second 2014 UPDATE will be to “Measuring Quit Rates.”
As is the case with each issue paper, NAQC members are being asked to review and comment on the first draft by participating in an online survey. Below you will find details on how to submit your comments on the paper’s first draft.

Online Survey Tool to Provide Written Feedback
Below please find the link to the online survey tool that NAQC is using to gather written comments on the draft issue paper. We are asking members to comment on the paper’s major strengths and weaknesses through a series of guided questions. The written feedback process will close on April 25th
