QuitConnect Project Update!

Thursday, April 10, 2014  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
The QuitConnect project, led by Drs. Jim Thrasher and Scott Strayer (University of South Carolina) incoordination with NAQC, has completed a series of focus groups in order to gain stakeholder perspectiveson the feasibility of creating a nation-wide registry of smokersfor coordinated outreach and research around continued engagement in smoking cessation. Three focus groups were conducted, with 1) quitline service providers, 2) quitline funders and administrators, and 3) researchers and national partners. The results have been analyzed and the findings reported back to the NAQC QuitConnect workgroup. A summary of the focus group results will follow shortly on the NAQC website. Currently, the QuitConnectinformation technologyplatform is under development, and the team is planning for an early May launch of the websiteand a pilot study to recruit quitline callers to join the QuitConnect community.For questions or additional information, please contact the project manager, Dr. Mark Macauda, at macauda@mailbox.sc.edu
