Sharing Models: New Research to Inform Our Practice
You are invited to join us on Wednesday,
January 16 from 12:30-2:00 PM ET for the next NAQC webinar
Sharing Models: New Research to Inform Our Practice.
Public-private cost sharing
partnerships provide states with a way to increase reach without increasing
their financial costs to operate quitline services. Such partnerships
distribute costs between state tobacco programs and private payers such as
health insurance companies, employer groups and unions. Additionally, as more
states engage in cost-sharing partnerships, it is essential to compile
information to help inform national and state efforts.
In this webinar, Julie Rainey,
Vice President, and Vanessa Klisch, Program Evaluator, from
Professional Data Analysts, Inc. (PDA) will share their recent research
findings on existing cost-sharing models discovered through a series of
interviews with state quitline administrators and service providers and present
considerations for states employing different models. Jessie Saul, NAQC’s
Director of Research, will introduce new NAQC Annual Survey of Quitlines
questions based on the cost-sharing typology developed by PDA in order to
capture a broader view of these efforts and discuss ways that findings might be
used to track progress and improve practice.
We look forward to your participation!Register today!
