All tobacco smokers should be identified and provided with a smoking cessation intervention (SCI) during tuberculosis (TB) treatment. To ensure that this occurs, the intervention process should be recorded and monitored. Monitoring is the best guarantee that care is standardised and offered equitably to all patients. It allows for evaluation of processes and outcomes so that population needs can be identified and appropriate techniques added or updated. In this article we propose steps for brief intervention as a part of the monitoring process, using model forms and suggested procedures for filling them in. The suggested forms are a modified TB treatment card that includes information about tobacco use, an SCI patient card to be added to the patient's TB treatment folder, SCI registers and SCI quarterly report forms and a tobacco use questionnaire for evaluation of services.
