Preparing for Graphic Health Warnings – NAQC Modifies MDS “How Heard About” Item!

Wednesday, January 11, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

In response to requests from NAQC members and national partners, the NAQC Minimal Data Set (MDS) workgroup has convened and made recommendations regarding one change to the intake question assessing how tobacco users heard about the quitline to include a national toll-free number on cigarette packages. The new response option is intended to help assess the impact of graphic health warnings on quitline call volume. Since the responses of callers are subject to individual recall, it is worth noting that the data will not provide a complete and 100% accurate measure of direct impact of graphic health warnings on quitline call volume. The proposed modifications will allow for monitoring changes in responses to the "how heard about” question currently on the MDS.
