Ottawa Model for Smoking Cessation – University of Ottawa Heart Institute:

Clinical practice guidelines emphasize that clinicians and healthcare delivery systems should consistently identify and treat all tobacco users using available counselling treatments and medications. But, evidence alone is insufficient to change routine clinical practice. There is a need to alter practices so that smoking cessation support is systematically and easily provided to all patients who smoke as part of routine care. The Ottawa Model for Smoking Cessation (OMSC) was created to address this need.
