As radiographers we have first hand experiences of the impact that smoking has on the health of individuals. In keeping with the theory of behaviour change and professionalism, radiographers should ideally assume a role modelling position by advocating for the elimination of smoking habits among our patients and colleagues. The aim of this campaign is to support the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) by educating and resourcing institutions offering radiography programmes with the view of reducing the impact of tobacco use in the profession as a whole.
