Our study shows that a physician training program in smoking cessation that was based on behavioral theory and active learning of counseling skills with standardized patients improved the frequency and quality of physician counseling and increased the 1-year rate of abstinence of smoking among outpatients. Both effects were clinically and statistically significant despite the high proportion of smokers who were not motivated to quit.
