Evaluation of Organisational Changes to Promote Smoking Cessation

2014-08-27 03:36:13 | BioPortfolio


The Department of Family Practice at Michigan State University partnered with BCBSM with a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to recruit primary care practices for a 3 year study designed to assess smoking cessation referral rates by primary care physicians in Michigan.


There are two main research questions to our study: 1) Whether provider referral rates to smoking cessation services and quitline counseling are enhanced by comparative feedback profiles to individual providers and provider groups (Study 1) and 2) Whether health plan members who receive pharmacotherapy for smoking cessation have higher participation rates in smoking cessation services if they receive proactive, invitational phone calls (Study 2).
