Positive smoking cessation knowledge changes can be achieved through teaching. It is not known if, or how, increases in knowledge will contribute to actual interventions in practice. It is suggested that interventions to support medical undergraduates to develop the knowledge and skills required to support patients effectively in stopping smoking need to be part of an integrated programme of teaching clinical knowledge, communication and clinical skills, coupled with opportunities to practise in simulated situations.
