Helping Young Smokers Quit: Identifying Best Practices for Tobacco Cessation

The Foundation's program, Helping Young Smokers Quit: Identifying Best Practices for Tobacco Cessation, was designed to evaluate and disseminate effective, developmentally appropriate cessation treatment programs for adolescents who smoke and try unsuccessfully to quit.The purpose of this project is to: (1) conduct key informant surveys in a nationally representative sample of 384 communities in the U.S. to identify existing smoking cessation programs; (2) profile identified programs through structured interviews with a knowledgeable program representative; and (3) analyze and synthesize program survey data with regard to methods, populations served, current evaluation practices, and host organization resources/constraints. These findings will guide the development of the methodology and hypotheses for the Phase II program evaluations.
