2011 Update to Expecting to Quit

Wednesday, May 16, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

As you may know, The British Columbia Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health (BCCEWH) has placed women’s tobacco use as a priority policy, research, and knowledge transfer issue over the past decade. The 2003 edition of Expecting to Quit has been the foundation of the design and delivery of tobacco interventions for pregnant women across Canada and internationally. Researchers at the BCCEWH have returned to the recent literature to complete a 2011 update on evidence-based interventions.

Take a few minutes to visit their new website, available in English and French, about smoking, pregnancy, change and support. Here is what you can find at www.expectingtoquit.ca:

1. A systematic review of research on tobacco interventions with pregnant women entitled, Expecting to Quit: A Best-Practices Review of Smoking Cessation Interventions for Pregnant and Postpartum Girls and Women (Second Edition)

2. "5 Ways to Change Your Practice” - Practice recommendations for physicians and other health care providers

3. "Meet Liz, Cristabel, and Noa” - Lessons from women who find their own path to becoming smoke-free

Hard copies of the Expecting to Quit: A Best-Practices Review of Smoking Cessation Interventions for Pregnant and Postpartum Girls and Women (Second Edition) report can be ordered through their website as well. They also have a Facebook page, www.facebook.com/expectingtoquit.
