Congratulations on Becoming a Connect2Quit Provider!
As a Connect2Quit provider, you can directly refer your patients to the Louisiana Tobacco Quitline making it easier and faster for them to start their journey to a tobacco-free life. The tools below will help you support your patients and encourage tobacco cessation at your facility.
Not already a Connect2Quit provider? Become one today!
Louisiana Tobacco Quitline Referral Form
The Louisiana Tobacco Quitline Referral Form allows you to link your patients directly to the Louisiana Tobacco Quitline. Once it is completed and emailed or faxed to the Quitline, a Quit Coach will contact your patient within 24 to 48 hours after the referral is processed to begin cessation counseling.
NOTE: During COVID-19 shelter-at-home, verbal consent is being allowed for the Connect2Quit program. Connect2Quit providers who wish to enroll patients through a telehealth visit can submit the Connect2Quit Verbal Consent Form.
On a bi-weekly basis, you will receive faxed Patient Progress Reports from the Quitline. These reports detail progress throughout a patient’s quit journey with the Quitline.
