Mobile Evidence-Based Smoking Cessation for Veterans Living With HIV (MESH)

2019-10-28 13:57:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Smoking is a significant cause of damage to health and quality of life specifically for Veterans with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Smoking cessation interventions for this population are lacking. The primary aim of this project is to explore smoking cessation treatment preferences among Veteran smokers living with HIV. The study team will refine the design and content of a smoking cessation treatment for Veteran smokers living with HIV. The intervention uses mobile health and telehealth technology to personalize smoking cessation counseling and medications and provide relapse prevention text messaging.

Description

Although smoking is a significant cause of damage to health and quality of life specifically for Veterans with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), smoking cessation interventions for this population are lacking. The primary aim of this project is to qualitatively explore smoking cessation treatment preferences among Veteran smokers living with HIV. The study team will refine the design and content of an intervention that uses mobile health and telehealth technology to a)individually personalize smoking cessation counseling and pharmacotherapy, and b) provide relapse prevention messaging support. It is a personalized, tailored, multi-component intervention for smoking cessation specifically designed for Veteran smokers living with HIV.

This project is highly significant given that: 1) smoking is prevalent among and particularly harmful for HIV-positive Veterans; 2) there is a dearth of research on smoking cessation for Veterans with HIV; 3) current approaches to smoking cessation in this population are not effective; 4) as the largest US provider of HIV health services, VHA is an ideal setting; and 5) the proposed intervention follows the VA Blueprint for Excellence, which prioritizes mobile health and treatment personalization to increase reach/efficacy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.

Contextually focused form of cognitive behavioral psychotherapy that uses MINDFULNESS and behavioral activation to increase patients' psychological flexibility in areas such as ability to engage in values-based, positive behaviors while experiencing difficult thoughts, emotions, or sensations.

The use of art as an adjunctive therapy in the treatment of neurological, mental, or behavioral disorders.

Therapy whose primary emphasis is on the physical and social structuring of the environment to promote interpersonal relationships which will be influential in reducing behavioral disturbances of patients.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
