RESEARCH SYNTHESIS

Community Guide posts new findings on increasin
g tobacco use cessation

The Community Guide recently posted the following Community Preventive Services Task Force findings on increasing tobacco use cessation:


 

Quitline Interventions The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends quitline interventions, particularly proactive quitlines (i.e., those which offer follow-up counseling calls), based on strong evidence of effectiveness in increasing tobacco cessation among clients interested in quitting. Evidence was considered strong based on findings from 58 trials of proactive telephone counseling when provided alone or in combination with additional interventions.

 

 

 

 

Reducing Out-of-Pocket Costs for Evidence-based Tobacco Cessation Treatments The Community Preventive Services Task Force added  economic efficiency information to its statement recommending policies and programs to reduce tobacco users' out-of-pocket costs for evidence-based cessation treatments.

USPSTF posts draft recommendation statement on interventions to prevent tobacco use in children and adolescents

Today, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force posted for public comment its draft recommendation statement on interventions to prevent tobacco use in children and adolescents. It is available for review and public comment from December 11, 2012, to January 7, 2013, by clicking here. A consumer fact sheet that explains the draft recommendation statement in plain language is also available online. The evidence report on which this draft recommendation is based was also published today in Annals of Internal Medicine and is available here.
