2013 NAQC Webinar Series!

Wednesday, December 12, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
Since 2004, NAQC has used conference call and webinar technology to offer members and partners an opportunity to dialogue with colleagues and experts from across North America on critical quitline-related topics. Each webinar serves as a vehicle to encourage dialogue on promising and better practices, new research findings, and implementation successes and challenges in order to improve quality, increase understanding of the evidence base, and ensure maximized access, use and effectiveness of quitline services.

We invite you to take a look at the first two 2013 NAQC Webinar topics below. Webinar topics in 2013 will continue to focus primarily on the impacts of healthcare reform, national promotion efforts (including graphic health warning labels and media campaigns), and emerging technologies on our work – as a quitline community and as members of the broader tobacco control community.

Webinars are 1.5 hours long and hosted on one Wednesday each month.

Please email Tamatha Thomas-Haase at should you have any questions or concerns related to the webinar series. We look forward to your participation!

Quitline Cost Sharing Models: New Research to Inform Our Practice
Public-private cost sharing partnerships provide states with a way to increase reach without increasing their financial costs to operate quitline services. Such partnerships distribute costs between state tobacco programs and private payers such as health insurance companies, employer groups and unions. Additionally, as more states engage in cost-sharing partnerships, it is essential to compile information to help inform national and state efforts.
In this webinar, Julie Rainey and Vanessa Klisch from Professional Data Analysts, Inc. (PDA) will share their recent research findings on existing cost-sharing models discovered through a series of interviews with state quitline administrators and service providers and present considerations for states employing different models. Jessie Saul, NAQC’s Director of Research, will introduce new NAQC Annual Survey of Quitlines questions based on the cost-sharing typology developed by PDA in order to capture a broader view of these efforts and discuss ways that findings might be used to track progress and improve practice.
