Join us on Thursday, April 19 from 12:00-1:30 pm ET for a webinar focused on the draft Research Agenda for Quitlines. NAQC member feedback is critical for helping to finalize the questions and potential uses for the research agenda, and to help NAQC set priorities for the questions. We do hope you can join us!

The Research Agenda for Quitlines is designed to help us answer the questions:
  • How can we most effectively reduce the impact and burden of tobacco use through increasing the reach, delivery, and effectiveness of quitlines?
  • How can we maximize our use of current resources?
  • How can we continue to advance the state of the field?
Its purpose is three-fold:
  • To provide criteria for developing and managing internally generated research (within the consortium) as well as external requests for consortium participation;
  • To develop a balanced research portfolio that meets the needs of the various stakeholder groups; and
  • To leverage use of the Minimal Data Set.
During the webinar, NAQC’s Director of Research, Jessie Saul, will present the Research Agenda for Quitlines, noting both the research questions it contains, as well as the ways that the quitline community might use the answers to those questions to advance quitline knowledge and practice. Immediately following the webinar, members will be able to provide their feedback on how the research questions should be prioritized, as well as whether any changes should be made to the agenda itself. The draft Research Agenda is available for review here.

If you are unable to participate in the webinar, you can still provide your feedback. Please review the Research Agenda for Quitlines. You can provide your feedback either by emailing Jessie Saul ( or by taking the Survey Monkey evaluation survey. We strongly encourage all members to vote on their top five research questions using the survey monkey link. This should take no more than five minutes of your time. Additional feedback can be provided about any of the research questions or the Research Agenda document.
