Grant ID: FAU Control #1306271049Summary: The New York State Department of Health (Department) Bureau of Tobacco Control (BTC) seeks applications from organizations that will work to engage health care systems to improve the delivery of guideline-concordant care for tobacco dependence through systems and policy change at the organizational level. A systems approach is consistent with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Health Impact Pyramid (Frieden, 2010) and interventions that have broader population effect and require lower individual level effort. Health care organizations that serve disproportionately affected populations (low income, low educational attainment, and serious mental illness) are the priority focus for this contract. Health system interventions should result in expansion of the reach of evidence-based smoking cessation interventions without direct provision of those services. The focus is on working with higher level administrative decision-makers to ensure that the providers in the health systems they oversee deliver appropriate and aggressive tobacco dependence treatment to its members.
