Canadian Smoking Cessation Guideline
CAN-ADAPTT: Practice-informed and Evidence-based Smoking Cessation Guideline (2011). CAN-ADAPTT worked with the Guidelines Advisory Committee (GAC) to conduct a literature search (years: 2002‐2009) to identify existing clinical practice guidelines. Five existing clinical practice guidelines were identified as meeting the high quality criteria set out in the AGREE Instrument. The recommendations contained in these high quality clinical practice guidelines have been used as the evidence base for the CAN‐ADAPTT guideline development process.
