Study of the Effect of Two Different Types of Telephone Counselling Respectively and a Web-based Smoking Cessation Programme Among Adult Daily Cigarette Smokers.
Smoking remains the most important threat to public health. The majority of smokers wish to
quit smoking and every year a substantial part of smokers makes a quit attempt. However, the
majority of smokers tries to quit unassisted and existing smoking cessation interventions
are underused. In this study we test the effectiveness of four different smoking cessation
interventions in a randomized controlled trial. The study provides knowledge on factors
important for recruitment and gives indication on potential reach of interventions among the
general population. This knowledge can help us in designing interventions that is both
effective but also have a high reach in the general population.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention
We measure the 30 days point prevalence abstinence rate. We measure whether participants have been totally smokefree for at least 30 days prior to the follow-up date.
