New Brief on Contingency Planning for Quitlines
Thursday, August 28, 2014
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
NAQC is pleased to share its new brief on contingency planning for quitlines with you. The brief is intended to serve as a quick-reference guide for three primary audiences: decision-makers within state, provincial, and federal agencies that fund quitlines; quitline service providers who offer guidance to their clients; and those who promote quitlines, either through media campaigns or referral systems. With an aim to be concise, this guidance brief draws upon previously-published resources from the North American Quitline Consortium (NAQC) in which recommendations for practice related to contingency planning are made.
The brief expands upon the following topics:
Contingency planning is important for quitlines
Considerations for quitlines managing short-term increase in demand
Considerations for those promoting quitlines
Considerations for quitlines managing shifts in funding
Please view the guidance guide here.
