    Tobacco smoke contains many toxic substances. It affects the health of smokers and of non-smokers exposed to it and increases the risks of certain types of cancers and respiratory diseases. Tobacco products are highly addictive and can cause the premature death of smokers.

    The 1992 Inuit health survey revealed an important proportion of smokers. Tobacco use was measured again in the 2004 survey. In the latter survey, all participants aged 15 years and over were questioned about smoking.

    The results from the Nunavik Inuit Health Survey 2004 show that more than three quarters of the participants surveyed smoked daily or occasionally, compared to one quarter of residents of the southern populations of Quebec and Canada. The proportions of smokers reported in the 2004...

    La fumée du tabac contient de nombreuses substances toxiques. Elle affecte la santé des fumeurs et des non-fumeurs qui y sont exposés et augmente les risques de développer certains types de cancers et maladies respiratoires. Les produits du tabac créent une forte dépendance chez ceux qui les consomment et peuvent aussi être responsables de la mort prématurée des fumeurs.

    En 1992, l’enquête de santé menée auprès des Inuits du Nunavik faisait état d’une importante proportion de fumeurs dans la région. L’usage de la cigarette a été mesuré de nouveau en 2004. Lors de cette dernière enquête, tous les participants de 15 ans et plus ont répondu aux questions relatives à la consommation du tabac.

    Les résultats de l’Enquête de santé auprès des Inuits du Nunavik 2004 montrent que...

    p>En septembre 2000, suite à une recommandation du Conseil consultatif de pharmacologie, le ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec (MSSS) décidait d'inclure trois types d'aides pharmacologiques à l'arrêt tabagique à la liste des médicaments couverts par le régime général d'assurance médicaments du Québec : le timbre de nicotine, la gomme de nicotine et le bupropion. Cette mesure, dénommée dans certains documents ministériels comme le programme de couverture des aides pharmacologiques (PCAP), s'inscrit dans un ensemble d'actions visant à lutter contre le tabagisme. Elle a pour objectif de soutenir les fumeurs qui désirent renoncer au tabac en réduisant les coûts associés à l'achat d'aides pharmacologiques reconnues pour doubler les taux de succès. En 2004, le MSSS...

    Ce rapport présente les résultats d'un sondage mené au mois de mai 2006 auprès de 2 736 fumeurs et anciens fumeurs récents (ayant cessé au cours des deux dernières années) au Québec âgés de 18 ans et plus. Cette étude avait pour objectifs principaux d'évaluer la connaissance, l'utilisation et l'utilité perçue de trois services d'aide à l'arrêt tabagique (ligne j'Arrête, site Internet j'Arrête, Centre d'abandon du tabagisme) et du programme de couverture des aides pharmacologiques du gouvernement du Québec pour les timbres de nicotine, les gommes de nicotine et le bupropion1. Le sondage servait également à documenter les pratiques de professionnels de la santé, telles que rapportées par les personnes qui les avaient consultés.

    More than 13,000 men and women in Quebec (about 36 per day) die each year from tobacco-related diseases. Although the prevalence of tobacco use has declined in the past decade, there are still 1.6 million smokers in the province who inhale more than 4,000 chemical products each day, at least 50 of which are carcinogenic.

    Since 2003, the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec (MSSS) has supported the implementation of the Plan québécois d'abandon du tabagisme. The objective of this province-wide program is to encourage smokers to quit, and to provide support for them in their efforts to quit. A range of free services have been implemented in Quebec progressively over the past four years, including a telephone helpline, a Web site on tobacco use cessation, and...
