Romanian Medicine students – reflection of our educational anti tobacco activities
Combustible cigarette smoking is the most attributable and preventable risk factor for adult mortality and morbidity in Romania and worldwide. Among health professionals, there is a paradoxically high prevalence of smokers in most European countries. Doctors need always to be health role models. As future physicians, medical students represent a primary target for tobacco-prevention programs, but they are also victims of the tobacco industry. The eternal question for all educational programs is whether the medical staff and students are prepared to deliver the anti-tobacco messages and to participate in activities in this domain.
