However, the evidence for such a relationship is incomplete.

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)

The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) announces a new Smoking Cessation Two-Three Initiative that seeks to enlist the help of all clinicians to get their patients who smoke to quit.
