This study examined factors that predicted retention in a home-based asthma education study that included smoking cessation counseling. Findings included that lower levels of depressed mood and fewer "pros” of smoking predicted completion of the intervention. Having more friends who smoke, fewer "pros” of smoking, and a strong belief that quitting smoking would benefit their child’s asthma predicted completion of the post-intervention assessment. Participants who were unemployed were more likely to complete all six intervention contacts than those who were working. The authors conclude that there is a need to tailor retention strategies to target those who are at highest risk of dropping out.
