A survey to assess smoking awareness and attitudes of staff at a local hospital


Rising smoking-related morbidity and mortality would be expected to lead to increased awareness among hospital staff regarding the harmful effects of cigarettes. The aim is to assess the smoking habits of individuals working within a hospital setting who are directly or indirectly exposed to patients with smoking-related illnesses. The survey addresses health issues and attitudes towards smoking. The timing is opportune in that Mater Dei Hospital Malta is to be declared a totally smoke-free hospital.peer-reviewe
