PROS Smokebusters: Adolescent Smoking Cessation in Pediatric Primary Care
Adolescent Smoking Cessation in Pediatric Primary Care

This is a pilot study addressing office systems and clinician behavior change surrounding smoking cessation interventions for teens. The investigators' long-term goal is to improve the quality of clinical preventive services in practice-based research network settings. Their specific aims are to:

  • a) pilot procedures for recruitment and randomization of PROS practices; and b) field trial/pilot PROS practitioner cessation counseling and practices' enrollment of adolescent patients; and
  • assess the feasibility of pediatric clinician referral of adolescent patients to internet-based adjuncts for smoking cessation.

The investigators will evaluate a pilot round of recruitment and randomization, and smoking cessation training and delivery in 10 PROS practice sites; and assess the acceptability of study procedures and on-line internet counseling adjunct referral feasibility within PROS practice sites. Up to 1000 adolescents presenting for well visits will complete a short baseline survey prior to their well-visit. A sample of them will be surveyed by phone at 4-6 weeks to provide preliminary estimates of cessation counseling effectiveness for future studies. The investigators will field test measures, describe the patterns of smoking among youth, and explore how much receiving interventions affects motivation, quitting, abstinence/relapse attitudes, attitudes towards internet-based outreach strategies, and behaviors for 100 smokers.
