Identify the ongoing needs of the community

Any one program or strategy is unlikely to address all the factors in the community that influence tobacco prevention and cessation.  You may find that your program is successful in its intent but is not having the impact it could have because there are community wide influences that are not addressed.  For example, you may find that your community still allows smoking in many areas.  You may decide to expand your efforts by moving to address these policies in addition to enhancing supportive relationships.
