Contexts of Tobacco Use and Perspectives on Smoking Cessation Among a Sample of Urban American Indians
Gryczynski J, Feldman R, Carter-Pokras O, Kanamori M, Chen L, Roth S. Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved. May 2010;21(2):544-558.

This study was designed to assess American Indians’ views that would be useful for planning and development of a smoking cessation intervention. To explore the sociocultural contexts of tobacco use and perspectives on mainstream and culturally-sepcific cessation strategies and programs, four focus groups were conducted with urban American Indians living in Maryland. Results included that interventions targeting American Indians should increase service access, address negative experiences with medications, emphasize empowerment for behavior change, explicitly distinguish ceremonial tobacco use from cigarette use, and send culturally-relevant messages.
