Webb MS, Rodríguez-Esquivel D, Baker EA. Am J Health Promot. 2010 Nov-Dec;25(2):109-18.
This study reviewed smoking cessation interventions targeting Hispanic adults living in the United States that had been evaluated by a randomized controlled trial. Five trials were eligible for inclusion in the analysis. Results showed that smoking cessation interventions were effective (odds ratio, 1.54). The authors conclude that more randomized trials evaluating tobacco interventions in this population are needed, with examination of the effect of cultural specificity and acculturation.
