Using Telephone Quitlines to Treat Youth Smokers.
Art Peterson
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Quitlines have a long-standing goal and interest in continuing to extend smoking cessation services to reach more smokers. An obstacle has been the limited scientific evidence for effectiveness of smoking cessation interventions specifically geared toward youth. Collaborating with 50 high schools, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center recently completed a large (n=2,151) long-term randomized trial to evaluate proactive telephone counseling (1) for reaching youth, and (2) for effecting cessation1,2. In this presentation, Art Peterson of the FHCRC will describe the trial and its results. The favorable results for both reach and effectiveness may present a possible new opportunity for quitlines to further extend quitline services to youth and young adults.
