The purpose

Tobacco smoke claims approximately 6000 lives annually in BC. In this study, the investigators will determine whether referring smoking patients from the Vancouver General Hospital Emergency Department to the investigators provincial QuitNow smoking cessation service will lead to improved patient outcomes, including number of cigarettes smoked, any quit attempts, and actual smoking cessation. Participants in the usual care arm will receive standard care. Participants in the intervention arm will be eligible for referral to QuitNow Services, where telephone counseling will be offered. Further follow-up on all enrolled patients will be conducted at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months to re-assess smoking status. The investigators hypothesis is that the intervention arm will have a higher quit rate that the control arm.
