BuTT Out! Stop Smoking Before Surgery Advisors

Opportunity Purpose
While developing the pre-surgical stop smoking (cessation) bundle as the intervention in our pilot randomized controlled trial, it became apparent that patient input would be valuable to this process. Someone who has previously wanted to quit, tried to quit smoking or has been successful in quitting could help design the materials from the patient’s perspective.

What’s Involved
We would like to involve the patient partner in helping to develop the smoking cessation bundle. Specifically, we need help around the wording of the advice given during the pre-admission clinic telephone call or whenever the smoking cessation advice is given. Review of selected brochures and video will also be helpful.

It’s really hard to make changes in health care. When a PVN patient partner says, ‘This is important to us’ it keeps us grounded on why a change is needed and keeps us motivated to keep going on projects.
