Tobacco Trials at St. Jude: Parent Willingness to Participate Among Families of Children With Cancer, Sickle Cell Disease, or Survivors of Childhood Cancer
Following a Behavioral Ecological Model (BEM), this study will assess factors that influence
parent's willingness to participate in tobacco trials that emphasize cessation or promotion
of smoke-free homes/cars while identifying barriers for implementing these strategies.
Information will be obtained from questionnaires completed by parents. This information
will be used to suggest an appropriate emphasis for intervention, refine our recruitment
strategies, design interventions that maximize participation rates and retention, and better
direct our resources and future tobacco control efforts for patients and their families.
- To estimate the proportion of smoking parents of children with cancer, children with
sickle cell disease (SCD), and childhood cancer survivors who are willing to
participate in tobacco trials offered in the context of their child's medical care.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
Proportion of parents willing to participate in tobacco trials
The proportion of parents who are willing to participate in a tobacco trial will be determined by affirmative responses to at least one of three questions that assess willingness to participate in a research study focused on smoking cessation, adoption of a smoke-free home and car, and/or enforcement and maintenance of a smoke-free home and car.
