Two possible strategies that nurses can implement are sensitization through media and lobbying politicians. Communication strategies can be used effectively through using public media such as television to broadcast important messages to the public. Another method they can apply is through policy development to allocate specific days whereby walks are organized so that the public can participate in spreading the message about dangers of smoking. However, there are some ways of enhancing the efficacy of these communication methods. One major way is to take advantage of social media. Social media should be used as a tool to educate people on public health measures. This is because most people have smart devices and therefore using technology will make sure that a wider audience is exposed to this important information. This will benefit public health by reducing mortality associated with Big Tobacco.
