smoking habits among Accident and Emergency / emergency room nurses

  1. dear readers, this is the first time i have used a chat room, so I will try to be brief.
    I am a firefighter in Dublin and am currently doing a project on:

    Cigarettes: Is there a link between firefighters who smoke while on duty and their work environment?

    we also operate as EMT's here and we are very aware that we see the same as the above category of nurses, so there will be the opportunity to extrapolate info across.

    there is no info on this subject within the firefighter world of research, which is very hard to understand.
    anyway, I have been unable to find any similar info relating to A&E nurses which would be the closest group to cross reference with, unless someone can advise otherwise.

    i have no experience in doing research, so i would be grateful for any help with this request.

    many thanks
