SAVE THE DATE! NAQC Webinar to Discuss Implications of New Article on Quitlines and NRT

Monday, April 16, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
NAQC will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, April 26, from 11a.m. – Noon Eastern Time (8-9 a.m. Pacific Time) to discuss implications of the recent article by Janet Ferguson et al. published in the British Medical Journal. The article, titled "Effect of offering different levels of support and free nicotine replacement therapy via an English national telephone quitline: randomised controlled trial,” 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 (University of California San Diego) 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. Details can be found on the NAQC website.

We look forward to your participation in this important webinar!
