Nabi-Burza and colleagues conducted a cluster randomized clinical trial of parental tobacco treatment in pediatric primary care settings. After the initial intervention implementation, 44% of parents received cessation assistance in intervention practices compared with fewer than 1% in control practices. Over the 2-year study period, intervention practices had a 2.7% decrease in the smoking rate in parents compared with a 1.1% increase in control practices.
