We are the combination of four hospitals: the General Hospital, the Children’s Hospital, the Women’s Hospital and the Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital. We are part of the Vall d’Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus: a world-leading health park where healthcare plays a crucial role.
Below we will list the departments and units that form part of Vall d’Hebron Hospital and the main diseases that we treat. We will also make recommendations based on advice backed up by scientific evidence that has been shown to be effective in guaranteeing well-being and quality of life.
We will guide you from your first visit to the centre, allowing you to find all the departments and make the most of our facilities. Whatever the reason for your visit, we will explain how to get about the hospital.
Our activity at the Tobacco cessation (quitting smoking) Clinic is aimed mainly at hospital staff who smoke and who want help in giving up smoking, but also at patients and external hospital staff who want to kick the habit.
At the Tobacco Cessation Clinic, part of the Preventive Medicine and Epidemiology Department at Vall d'Hebron University Hospital, we have been providing care since 1990.
Our activity covers the following areas:
At the initial visit, we conduct a specific clinical history of the patient's tobacco use and start a series of supplementary investigations, which include: a tobacco dependency test, a motivational test and we gauge the mood of the smoker using a confidence scale. We also measure lung capacity with a spirometer and check blood pressure.
Next, we provide patients with information about the processes that can help them to quit smoking and the main reasons for quitting smoking. Finally, we draw up a joint plan for quitting, bearing in mind the level of nicotine dependency, and explain the pharmacological and non-pharmacological aids available.
At this point we schedule a control visit once a week during the first month. As of the second month, visits are monthly.
