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

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.
