The overall goal of this study was to determine whether the intervention outcomes in these self-guided scalable formats approximate what was found in a more intensive telephone counseling program. The print and Web formats yielded equivalent levels of success to those found with our telephone-delivered intervention and are comparable to other Internet treatment studies. This study provides important options for survivorship programs that may not have resources for interpersonal forms of cessation counseling. Efforts to increase patient use of the interventions may result in higher cessation rates.
