The tabacology section was set up in 2007 at the second National Conference on Tobacco, entitled "Health or Tobacco", held in Cluj, between May 10-12 2007, with the wish to help smokers, and not just only them. The objectives of this department were to attract as many pneumologists as possible to the smoking cessation cabinet, but also to develop educational materials for smokers (brochures, flyers, video clips, DVDs, etc.) to be distributed in specialized smoking cessation services. Another challenge was the continuation of the work that started with the introduction of the concept of smoking cessation in both the university and postgraduate medical curricula. Also, the activity of the section was devoted mainly to the elaboration of the first Romanian guide for granting specialized smoking cessation assistance - the GREFA guide, published in 2008, updated in 2010.
Another objective was the continuation of already initiated partnerships with other professional societies (Romanian Society of Cardiology, Romanian Society of Internal Medicine, etc.) and the development of new collaborations in the field of assistance to smokers with still unaddressed professional categories such as psychologists, psychiatrists, oncologists, nurses, obstetricians, occupational medicine specialists, etc., as well as the organization of scientific and continuing medical education in the field of local and national conferences of the Romanian Society of Pulmonologists (RSP) or other medical societies of various specialties.
