 "CEASE California": The project disseminates and evaluates the CEASE California program (Clinical Effort Against Secondhand Smoke Exposure). CEASE is a clinic intervention for pediatric offices to screen for secondhand smoke exposure (SHSE) in patients, and help parents quit by offering NRT and a referral to the CA Smokers Helpline. This training intervention is focused on busy clinics serving low income populations. Clinicians, medical assistants, and nurses are trained in the "Ask, Assist, Connect" model and encouraged to actively intervene in families where parents/caregivers are smokers.
