Webinar to Discuss Article on Quitlines and NRT – Thursday, April 26!

Thursday, April 12, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
NAQC will be hosting a webinar on Thursday,  April 26, from 11 a.m. – Noon Eastern Time (8-9 a.m. Pacific time) to discuss implications of the recent article by Ferguson et al. published in the British Medical Journal. The article described a 2x2 randomized study conducted in the UK comparing standard quitline care to proactive counseling, and provision of NRT to no NRT. The authors conclude that "offering free nicotine replacement therapy or additional (proactive) counselling to standard helpline support had no additional effect on smoking cessation.”

Presentations will include a summary of the study design and findings, as well as formal responses from Dr. Shu-Hong Zhu (UCSD) and Dr. Bruce Baskerville (University of Waterloo)Strengths and weaknesses of the study, as well as implications for quitlines in a North American context will be discussed. Join us for this important webinar! Members and non-members alike are invited to participate.
