    • Southeast Asia (REGION)

    Brief health education intervention by nurses in a busy clinical setting produced short-term effects in several key areas: raising awareness about exposure to secondhand smoke, reducing cigarette consumption, initiating quit attempts, and ultimately reducing sick children’s exposure to secondhand smoke. However, these short-term effects were not sustained at the 12-month follow-up, resulting in the need for more intensive interventions. Nurses can play key roles in providing individual counselling and advocacy of smoke-free homes in Hong Kong.
