Within the time constraints of a busy practice, it can be helpful to provide smoking cessation support by referring patients to Quitline.

Refer patients online or by downloading the medical software referral template.

You can download* and import the Quitline digital referral template into Medical Director, Best Practice or Zedmed.

You can refer your patient and their family/friends to information on the Quitline website or order a range of brochures for them to read through in their own time.

*WARNING: do not open the digital referral template file (*.rtf) with word processing software before importing. Doing so damages the format and requires you to repeat the download procedure.
