2014 Annual Webinar Series - The Evolving Cessation Evidence Base

2014 Annual Webinar Series

The Evolving Cessation Evidence Base: Implications for Our Practice, Our Policies and Our Reach

The 2014 Webinar Series will continue NAQC’s ten-year education and quality improvement mission: 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.

Webinars in the 2014 series will focus on new and emerging models for delivering cessation treatment, highlighting implications of the evolving evidence base for new cessation products and delivery methods on quitline practice, as well as possible implications for their expanding quitline reach to the changing demographics of tobacco users.

Please note, in addition to the quarterly webinar series, NAQC also will present webinars related to our ongoing programs such as results from the annual survey of quitlines, new quality improvement papers from the advisory council, and updates from the eReferral workgroup, Medicaid roundtable, and states engaged in developing cost-sharing partnerships with health plans and employers. We will keep you updated on program webinars as they are planned.

Webinars will 1.5 hours long and hosted on a selected 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!

E-Cigarette Use: What We Know, What We Don’t and What it Means for Quitlines
Webinar presenters will provide a review of the scientific evidence on e-cigarettes with a focus on the potential harms of using the product and the potential benefits (i.e., as a method for quitting and preventing relapse), followed by a panel discussion on implications for quitline practice.

Referrals, Reach and Retention: Are Quitline Outreach and Healthcare Provider Training Efforts Paying Off?
Nearly ten years ago NAQC began to see a quick, steady rise in the number of states dedicating resources and effort to develop fax-referral systems. Recently, we have turned our focus to implementation of eReferral. However, what have we learned about generating referrals to quitlines by healthcare providers over the past ten years? Are our referral systems generating enrollment in quitline services to the degree we need them to in order to impact prevalence rates? How have our practices changed in order to ensure retention in services, especially with specific populations?

These and other questions related to ten years of lessons learned will be explored by a panel of service providers, evaluators and funders.
