Trial Information

Partnership for Health: A Web-Based Smoking Intervention For Cancer Survivors


The proposed study is a randomized controlled trial with two groups. It is designed to
demonstrate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of a Web-based format of the PFH
intervention, compared to a written Materials control condition. The study will be conducted
among childhood and young adult cancer survivors who smoke at four survivor clinics.
Participants in both conditions will receive access to pharmacotherapy at no cost.
Participants in the Web condition will receive access to an interactive Web site that
focuses on survivorship, health, and smoking.

Participants in the Web condition will receive access to an interactive Web site that
focuses on survivorship, health, and smoking. Participants in the Materials control group
will receive tailored and targeted print materials.
