Helping physicians help patients
Over the next year, Dartmouth researchers will carry out a pilot study to determine if training physicians in a standardized protocol can help smokers with vascular disease quit smoking. The trial will be led by Philip Goodney, an assistant professor of surgery at Geisel, and Emily Spangler, a resident in vascular surgery at DHMC. They were recently awarded a grant of $100,000 from the Society for Vascular Surgery to carry out the study.
