NAQC offers tools and resources to the quitline community to promote quitlines during policy changes such as increases in tobacco taxes and smoke-free policies. Current resources include the NAQC Case Study Series and Policy Playbook: A Guide to Promoting Quitlines During Policy Change.
The NAQC Case Studies focus on describing quitlines’ experiences providing cessation services during the implementation of new statewide smoke-free policies. Each case study highlights the main issues, opportunities, challenges and lessons learned by quitlines and their partners.
The Policy Playbook contents are based on information gathered from case studies written to highlight the main issues, opportunities, challenges and lessons learned by quitlines and their partners when implementing smokefree policies.
Information focuses on promoting quitline services to smokers following the enactment of new clean indoor air laws. The playbook provides strategies to help states maximize cessation attempts through the use of quitlines and suggests an ideal approach to accomplish this goal. Implementing smokefree policies presents many opportunities to promote quitlines, including paid media, toolkits, public relations, websites, trainings, workplace signage, collateral materials and more.
