    Evidence-based treatments for tobacco use and dependence can increase cessation success but remain underutilized. Health professional societies and voluntary health organizations (advising organizations) are uniquely positioned to influence the delivery of cessation treatments by providing clinical guidance for healthcare providers. This study aimed to review the guidance produced by these organizations for content and consistency with current evidence. Documents discussing healthcare providers' role in treatment of tobacco use and dependence produced by US-based advising organizations between 2000 and 2019 were identified in both peer-reviewed and grey (i.e., informally or non-commercially published) literature. Extraction of variables, defined in terms of healthcare provider role and endorsement of specific treatment(s), was completed by two independent reviewers. Review of 38 identified documents sponsored by 57 unique advising organizations revealed deficits in the direction of comprehensive care and incorporation of the most recent evidence for treatment of tobacco use and dependence. Documents endorsed: screening (74%), pharmacotherapy (68%), counseling (89%), or follow-up (37%). Few documents endorsed more recent evidence-based treatments including combination nicotine replacement therapy (18%), and text- (11%) and web-based (11%) interventions. Advising organizations have opportunities to address identified gaps and enhance clinical guidance to contribute toward expanding the provision of comprehensive tobacco cessation support.
