Position Statement

What was covered during this seminar?


During the webinar, implications of the recent article by Ferguson et al. published in the British Medical Journal describing a 2x2 randomized study conducted in the UK comparing standard quitline care to proactive counseling, and provision of NRT to no NRT were discussed. The authors conclude that "offering free nicotine replacement therapy or additional (proactive) counselling to standard helpline support had no additional effect on smoking cessation.”

Presentations included a summary of the study design and findings, as well as formal responses from Dr. Shu-Hong Zhu (UCSD) and Dr. Bruce Baskerville (University of Waterloo). Strengths and weaknesses of the study, as well as implications for quitlines in a North American context were discussed. For more information, please visit the Research Call Page
