Content By: Lum, A., Skelton, E., Wynne, O., & Bonevski, B. (2018). A systematic review of psychosocial barriers and facilitators to smoking cessation in people living with schizophrenia. Frontiers in Psychiatry, 9, e565.

Course Description: Rates of smoking are significantly higher among people living with schizophrenia. Additionally, research suggests schizophrenia may be a risk factor for nicotine dependence making smoking cessation efforts more challenging. Therefore, identifying barriers and facilitators to smoking cessation for people living with schizophrenia is critical. Researchers identified numerous barriers to smoking cessation in people living with schizophrenia including, but not limited to, craving, managing stress, and maintaining social relationships. People living with schizophrenia were also less likely to receive advice to quit smoking from a health professional. Future research is needed to identify useful facilitators to assist in smoking cessation engagement among people living with schizophrenia.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Compare and contrast the costs and benefits of using pharmacological and psychosocial treatment strategies for smoking cessation for people living with schizophrenia
  2. List one barrier and one facilitator to smoking cessation for people living with schizophrenia
  3. Discuss the role health practitioners play in promoting smoking cessation efforts for people living with schizophrenia

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand A systematic review of psychosocial barriers and facilitators to smoking cessation in people living with schizophrenia
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Reflect on the identified barriers and facilitators of smoking cessation for people living with schizophrenia
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand whether pharmacological and psychosocial treatment strategies would be more effective for smoking cessation efforts among people living with schizophrenia
