Evaluation of the Impact of a Bulletin Board on a Web-Based Smoking Cessation Intervention


OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the perception of utility of the current, publicly accessible version of the
smokefree.gov website and the addition of an electronic bulletin board and its
features, including open-ended comments, in promoting smoking cessation among United
States federal employees who are currently smokers.

- Determine the use of this tool, in terms of average length of time spent on the
website, number of page clicks, most popular page clicks, and key interest areas, among
these participants.

- Determine the changes in smoking habits, in terms of smoking reduction and short- and
long-term abstinence, among these participants.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label study.

Participants are encouraged to use the smokefree.gov website as frequently as needed for
support and resources while trying to quit smoking and become, and remain, nonsmokers.
Participants are invited to provide feedback on the usefulness of self-help guidelines and
several other tools. Participants complete questionnaires evaluating the website at study
entry and at 1, 3, and 6 months after study entry.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 4,200 participants will be accrued for this study.
