Using Email to Help Smokers Quit: Results from a Randomized Clinical Trial

CE Title: Helping Smokers Quit: Efficacy of Tailored Email Messages Providing Information

By J. Lee Westmaas, PhD

J. Lee Westmaas, PhD, is director of tobacco control research in the Behavioral Research Center (BRC) at the American Cancer Society. His research uses theory to investigate predictors of smokers’ motivation to quit, and the success of their quit attempts, in cancer survivors and other populations that experience disparities in the prevalence and effects of tobacco use (e.g., socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals, LGBTI). His research emphasizes social/psychological influences and processes, for example, the receipt of emotional and other support during quit attempts, mood, personality factors, and the role of health behavior theory variables such as perceptions of risk and self-efficacy. Contextual and environmental influences such as education level, stress, access to health care and cessation treatment, and tobacco regulation through smoke-free laws and taxes, are also important considerations in his research. Dr. Westmaas uses results of this research to develop and test interventions that take advantage of existing digital tools such as email, smartphone apps, and texts to provide information and support to assist smokers’ quit attempts.

Objectives:

  • Identify digital based interventions for smoking cessation.
  • Identify advantages for utilizing tailored emails for smoking cessation.

Providing Smoking Cessation Services to Cancer Patients

By Sonia Duffy, PhD, RN, FAAN

During her pre-doctoral post-doctoral fellowships, Dr. Duffy was trained in health behaviors and epidemiology, particularly related to smoking cessation, but also other health behaviors. Since then, Dr. Duffy's research interests have focused on health behavior interventions among a variety of populations. Dr. Duffy conducted a randomized controlled trial (RCT) testing the Tobacco Tactics intervention among head and neck cancer patients and it was found to be efficacious. Based on this work, she conducted an implementation study to test the Tobacco Tactics intervention among inpatients at three VA hospitals and it was also found to be effective. In a recently completed U01 grant, across non-VA hospitals, she trained 1028 inpatient nurses to conduct the Tobacco Tactics intervention, which significantly increased quit rates in the intervention hospitals compared to usual care hospitals. In a recently completed R21, she tested the web-based Tobacco Tactics intervention among blue collar workers and found significantly increased quit rates in the intervention group compared to referral the 1-800-QUIT NOW group. As part of a large NCI supported p50 grant, Dr. Duffy showed the relationship between biomarkers and health behaviors and survival.

Objectives:

  • Identify the prevalence of smoking among cancer patients
  • Identify risks associated with continued smoking among cancer patients
  • Identify physical, psychological, and social issues related to smoking among cancer patients
  • Identify patient, provider, and institutional barriers to providing cessation services to cancer patients
  • Identify evidence-based treatment strategies for delivering smoking cessation interventions to cancer patients
