As tobacco use continues as the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., the topic is a critical one for nursing science and for nursing scholarship. This book describes and synthesizes the current state of nursing research in tobacco control (prevention, treatment of tobacco dependence, and reducing exposure to environmental tobacco smoke). It identifies gaps in the literature and provides a foundation for future research in the area. The volume will be divided into four sections. This title includes such topics as: historical perspective of the emergence of nursing science and scientists in tobacco control, including a review of smoking among the nursing profession; diverse strategies used by nurse scientists in building the science; nursing involvement in the development of the Public Health Service Clinical Practice Guideline on Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence and nursing intervention research with a variety of populations; and, translation of evidence-based practice into patient populations, and strategies for development of future scholars.
