Don't Be Silent 2008 CampaignThe Don’t Be Silent About Smoking campaign was originally launched in

February 2008 with ads appearing in medical journals and websites,

magazines and newspapers across New York State. The ads featured striking

images of healthcare providers with their mouths stitched or taped shut to

dramatize the importance of clinicians talking to their patients about

smoking.

The campaign was unusually successful in reaching and getting the attention

of busy doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Those who

had seen the ads were significantly more likely to ask patients about

tobacco use, assess readiness to quit, advise patients to quit, and provide

pharmacotherapy.
