Heather Osterberg-Aloi, MS, CTTS-M Senior Program Specialist


Participants will learn how to assess motivation to quit tobacco use. Participants will learn specific treatment strategies that match the client’s motivational level, including precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, and maintenance levels. Participants will learn how to integrate motivational interviewing style and identify “teachable moments” to provide personalized feedback with clients. Participants will learn specific content that could be integrated into patient education activities.




In collaboration with the client, identify specific and measurable treatment objectives. Plan individualized treatments that account for patient assessment factors identified during the intake assessment and history gathering.

Collaboratively develop a treatment plan that uses evidence-based strategies to assist the client in moving toward a quit attempt, and/or continued abstinence from tobacco.

Why did they start? How soon to daily use? Family Environment - Supportive vs. Discouraging
“How did your parents react when they learned you were smoking?” “How does your significant other feel about your smoking?”

A CO meter measures the amount of carbon monoxide in your body. My CO reading is: __________ One of the most deadly chemicals found in cigarettes smoke is carbon monoxide (CO).

0-8: Normal to very low smoking or second hand smoking 8-12 Worry—you are affecting your health 12-25 Cause for alarm—you are harming yourself 25-40 Danger or hazard to you health Over 40 Severe Danger—take immediate action Great News: If you quit smoking, your CO level will go back down to “0” and you will begin to feel better. You will be at the level of someone who never smoked. Your heart and lungs will benefit immediately and you will feel better.

When you smoke, you replace oxygen with carbon monoxide in your blood. YOU ARE POISIONING YOURSELF!
The body needs oxygen to survive so the heart works harder to deliver oxygen. This puts smokers at greater risk for having heart attacks. CO is an odorless and colorless gas and even though you can’t see it, smell it, or taste it, it can kill you. This is the reason we have CO detectors in our homes. Environmental safety literature states that CO readings above 36ppm pose serious dangers to health and would evacuate buildings at this level.

Give the client directions and reassure them that once you begin you will remind them as they go along.

Sit up straight in the chair with both feet flat on the floor. When I say go, you will take a deep breath and hold it for 15 seconds. The machine will help you count down for 15 seconds. When it gets to zero, close your lips tightly around the cardboard tube and blow out (exhale) into the tube for as long as you can. Do not blow too hard or it can affect the reading by disengaging the valve pin in the meter; just breathe out gently.

View output number and explain the reading to your client.
