SC CAN Quit

SC CAN Quit facilitates the implementation of tobacco treatment as a standard of care in all SC cancer centers. Reducing tobacco use in cancer patients can improve cancer treatment outcomes and reduce the risks of secondary cancer development.

The aim of implementing tobacco treatment as a standard of care is to assure that every cancer patient:
1) is screened for tobacco use, 2) is advised to quit if they are a smoker, 3) is entered into evidence-based tobacco cessation services or programs, and 4) receives follow-up regarding quitting efforts. The
 primary project partners are the Medical University of South Carolina, South Carolina Department of Health and Environment Control, and the University of South Carolina.
