Smokers in the Age of Mobile Technology: Resources, Networks, and Messaging
As of 2013, every US state and Canadian province has a toll free tobacco
quitline as a resource to treat tobacco dependence. The October National Cancer
Institute (NCI) Research to Reality cyber seminar will examine how networks of
quitlines interact and share innovations in quitline practices. We will also
explore how text messaging as a smoking cessation resource platform may be a
better suited method for reaching a new generation of smokers.
Dr. Jessie Saul, author of Mapping
Tobacco Quitlines in North America: Signaling Pathways to Improve Treatment
will join us to share a snapshot of the findings of the network practices and
interconnectivity of the North American Quitline Consortium (NAQC).
Anathalie Jean-Charles from the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS, Quebec
Division) will then share the results of a text message based smoking cessation
pilot launched to target young adult smokers.
Jessie Saul, and Anathalie Jean-Charles will share their perspectives on
the adoption and implementation practices of telecommunication platforms and
The final part of the webinar will be dedicated to Q&A and discussion
and will offer an opportunity to engage with the presenters, and also to share
your own experiences and thoughts.
