Abstract

The entire online HIV Medical Association US registry was invited to complete a questionnaire regarding beliefs and practices related to smoking in persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHAs). 363/486 returned completed questionnaires. Respondents from 43 states reported caring for 76,570 PLWHAs. Only 22.9% had ever received formal tobacco treatment training. Respondents generally agreed that smoking is an important issue in PLWHAs, but reported low levels of cessation-promoting activities. Providers with larger patient panels, ''primarily HIV'' practices, and formal cessation training had higher questionnaire scores, indicating stronger beliefs in the harms of smoking, benefits of quitting, and effectiveness of cessation strategies.
