This study aimed to measure the impact of adding Motivational Interviewing (MI) to the first session of the Swedish National Tobacco Quitline. Quitline callers in 2005 and 2006 were randomized to standard treatment (ST) or MI (n=772). Results showed that 19% of the MI group reported being quit at months (continuous abstinence) compared to 14% of the ST group (OR 1.48, 95% CI 1.00-2.19; p=0.047). The authors conclude that integrating MI into a quitline setting increased 6-month continuous abstinence rates by 5 percentage points.
