Wednesday, September 7, 2011
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
The NAQC "Coffee Break”
series is a monthly 30-minute webinar designed to serve as an informal forum to
discuss current, upcoming, and potential quitline-related research; facilitate
communication and interaction between researchers; and create and support
connections between researchers and quitlines.
The next call will be on Thursday, September 8, from 2:00-2:30 p.m. Eastern Time (11:00-11:30 a.m. Pacific
Time). Peter Selby (Centre for Addiction and Mental
Health, and University
of Toronto) will present
on "Web enrollment and
self assessment for NRT: feasibility and quit rates.” The presentation will aim to demonstrate that web-based smoking
cessation intervention approaches ensure wide reach and ease of recruitment
with little to no decrease in effectiveness. It is strongly recommended that
you test your system in advance of the call time to ensure you can access the
webinar features. For more information about the speaker or topic, click here. Call-in information is available
