This study assessed the relationship between mode of entry into a quitline service and treatment outcomes. Data from the Arizona Smokers’ Helpline were analyzed to examine whether self-referrals or health care provider referrals were related to quit outcomes at 7 months post-registration for quitline services. Results showed that smokers referred to the quitline by a health care provider were more likely to quit than those who called themselves without a health care provider referral. The authors note that the reasons for this are uncertain, and require additional research.
