The study reports the results of a survey by questionnaire on the health staff's smoking habits in the Hospital-University Complex of Sassari. Thirty-one percent are smokers: 35.5% among nurses, 21.4% among doctors and 40.4% among service staff. Daily smokers are 87.2% and 46% smoke 10 or more cigarettes per day. The great part of the sample thinks that it has to participate in tobacco control programs, although 6.0% of doctors disagree. Multiple correspondence analysis showed different profiles on attitudes and smoking habits among health staff components. Among no-smokers, nurses, technicians and service staff are not favorable to the tobacco control campaigns thinking they should not be a role model to others. Among smokers, service staff and some physicians showed a similar profile; moreover, they smoke in front of patients. These results indicate that the smoking attitude of some health staff components might be a "negative" model to which refer and it might interfere with tobacco control programs.
