The overall goal of this study was to determine whether the
intervention outcomes in these self-guided scalable formats approximate what
was found in a more intensive telephone counseling program. The print and Web
formats yielded equivalent levels of success to those found with our telephone-delivered
intervention and are comparable to other Internet treatment studies. This study
provides important options for survivorship programs that may not have
resources for interpersonal forms of cessation counseling. Efforts to increase
patient use of the interventions may result in higher cessation rates.
