New Minimal Data Set Resources Now Available

Thursday, January 20, 2011  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

In response to member inquiries and suggestions, and as part of an overall focus on critical tools for monitoring and evaluating quitlines, NAQC has been working on two resources related to its Minimal Data Set for Evaluating Quitlines (MDS). The MDS was most recently updated in December 2009 and since that time, NAQC has received many requests for a version of the MDS that is better suited for use in an online environment. This new version of the MDS has been specifically developed for the purpose of web-based data collection of telephone-based interventions. At the same time, there has been a great deal of interest in the potential for quitlines to serve tobacco users with behavioral health issues (both mental and emotional health issues). Over the past several months, NAQC has developed a modified MDS for use in online intervention services, which is now available on the NAQC website, and is in the process of finalizing the optional screening questions for behavioral health issues.
