Millions of individuals with chronic pain smoke and our preliminary research suggests that currently available strategies to help people quit smoking may not be effective for individuals with chronic pain. This is important in that smokers with chronic pain have worse pain-related health outcomes compared to nonsmokers with chronic pain. The primary aim of this research project is to develop a smoking cessation intervention for specific use in an outpatient clinical setting for smokers with chronic pain.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The key measurement to be used to assess the effect of the experimental intervention will be the status of cigarette smoking at 6-month follow-up. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • A key secondary outcome measure will be self-report pain severity at 6-months following completion of the experimental intervention. [ Time Frame: 6 month ]
