November “Coffee Break” Call on Weekly Patterns in Usage of Tobacco Quit Lines

Wednesday, November 9, 2011  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
The NAQC "Coffee Break” series is a monthly 30-minute webinar designed to serve as an informal forum to discuss current, upcoming, and potential quitline-related research; facilitate communication and interaction between researchers; and create and support connections between researchers and quitlines.

The next call will be TODAY (Thursday, November 10), from 2:00-2:30 p.m. Eastern Time (11:00-11:30 a.m. Pacific Time). Morgan Johnson, with the Mondays Campaign, will present on "WeeklyPatterns in Usage of Tobacco Quit Lines.” For tobacco cessation in particular, insight into behavioral patterns may be valuable for determining how to optimally time interventions to reach the most people and sustain behavior change. New evidence suggests that there are consistent weekly cycles in usage of tobacco quit lines. Studying these cycles may help us streamline quit line programs by more efficiently allocating quit line resources at certain optimal times, as well as showing us when is the best time to promote these programs to capture the most tobacco users. The presentation will walk participants through the evidence for these weekly patterns and what the results contribute to our knowledge of quit lines and how to improve them.

It is strongly recommended that you test your system in advance of the call time to ensure you can access the webinar features. For more information about the speaker or topic, click here. Call-in information is available on the NAQC website at . Presentation slides are posted on the same page.

The September call featured Dr. Peter Selby (Nicotine Dependence Clinic, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health) presenting on "Web-assisted Tobacco Interventions: Recent Research on Online Support for Smokers Trying to Quit.” The presentation slides and call recording are available here.
