Project CASA: Promoting Smoke-Free Indoor Air Policy in Mexican American Households


If you choose to take part in this behavioral study, each household will be randomly
assigned to one of 2 study groups. Each study group will receive a different set of
learning tools. You will have an equal chance of being assigned to each group.

During Visit 1, researchers will come to your home and explain the study. You will receive
a detailed description of the project's goals and procedures. The study staff member will
ask you a series of questions to find out about the people who live in your home. The
interview will take about 40-50 minutes. Project staff will set up 2 air quality monitors
in your home. Each monitor is about the size of a deck of cards. The monitors will be used
to measure the air quality in the home.

During Visit 2 (about 1 week after Visit 1), the air quality monitors will be collected.
Both participating adult members of the household will be surveyed (on a laptop computer)
about their lifestyle habits. This will take about 30-40 minutes. In addition, learning
tools will be provided.

About 6 months later, you will have 2 more follow-up visits. During Visit 3, project staff
will again set up 2 new air quality monitors in your home. Seven (7) days later (Visit 4),
project staff will return to the home to collect the monitors. The same participating adult
members of the household will be surveyed again (on a laptop computer) about their lifestyle
habits. This will take about 30-40 minutes.

In another 6 months (12 months from the start of the study), you will have the last 2
follow-up visits. During Visit 5, project staff will again set up 2 air quality monitors in
your home. Seven (7) days later (Visit 6), project staff will return to your home to
collect the monitors. The same participating adult members of the household will be
surveyed again (on a laptop computer) about their lifestyle habits. This will take about
30-40 minutes. At the end of this visit, you will have completed the study. Up to 125
households will take part in this study.

Outcome Measure:

Monitoring Secondhand Smoke (SHS): Nicotine Exposure Levels

Outcome Description:

SHS exposure based on objective monitoring of SHS in each household (in the kitchen and TV room) over a 7-day period. Passive nicotine monitor used in each home to measure exposure to nicotine which is commonly used as a marker for SHS exposure, and validate self-reported smoking. The method of analysis will be a pre-post test analysis of covariance, ANCOVA, using a linear regression model (PROC REG in SAS).

Outcome Time Frame:

Baseline and 6 Month Follow Up, up to 12 months

Safety Issue:

No
