Benefits of quitting smoking before surgery
Date: 23 February 2017
The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) put out a press release launching a new campaign to encourage smokers to quit before surgery, with support from ASH.
The campaign follows the publication of a patient leaflet giving advice on quitting in the run-up to surgery. This leaflet is based on the more detailed Joint Briefing: Smoking and Surgery published by ASH in 2016.
