Children’s secondhand smoke (SHS) exposure remains a significant
public health concern. In the UK, over half of children who live with
smokers are regularly exposed to SHS at home. School nurses are well placed to raise the issue of SHS exposure, explain the benefits of creating smoke-free environments, and help with practical advice. This article looks at the impact of secondhand smoke exposure and a training module available to school nurses, which aims to help them acquire the knowledge and skills required to intervene effectively with anyone who smokes and cares for children.
