Innovative Strategies to Increase the Reach and Utilization of
Quitlines Among Priority Populations (member-only event)
September 2 from 12:30 pm – 2 pm ET
Quitlines are well positioned to serve almost the entire population of tobacco users, however, their reach to date is limited. One potential benefit of quitlines is their ability to reach populations who would not otherwise seek tobacco cessation treatment services. During this webinar, two researchers will report on innovative strategies to increase quitline reach and effectiveness with low-income smokers. Jim Pavlik will report on the evaluation of current quitline services for low-income smokers to identify both primary barriers to Colorado QuitLine use and recommended tactics that may assist in overcoming identified barriers. Bruce Christiansen will report on the results of providing a brief motivational intervention to smokers who were not motivated to quit, recruited from five Wisconsin Salvation Army sites. Participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences on this topic and discuss implications for future practice.
