Effective cessation treatments exist for mental health patients, but smokers with mental health conditions encounter low rates of tobacco screening and treatment by psychiatrists. Strategies are needed to improve the implementation of evidence-based tobacco treatment in outpatient psychiatry. This study will evaluate preliminary efficacy, provider perceptions, and barriers/facilitators to implementation of an opt-out approach to treating psychiatric patients for smoking.Abstract on NIH RePORTER
