Evaluation of Organisational Changes to Promote Smoking Cessation (ESCMMP)
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.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Health Services Research
|Official Title:||Evaluation of Organisational Changes to Promote Smoking Cessation|
- evaluate and provide a model of smoking cessation interventions
|Study Start Date:||December 2001|
|Study Completion Date:||April 2005|
No Intervention: 2
Behavioral: Feeback group
The intervention practices received a quarterly comparative feedback performance report based on the Achievable Benchmarks of Care (ABC) research conducted by Kieffe (YEAR).
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).
