Developing Youth Tobacco Cessation Treatment Outcome Measures

Rigorous and innovative research to develop and evaluate new approaches to youth tobacco cessation is sorely needed. Existing studies indicate that cessation programs and methods developed for adult smokers are not nearly as effective with adolescents. The Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco organized a conference aimed at addressing the fundamental methodological issues that confront tobacco treatment outcome research. The product of this meeting will be a report that outlines the pros and cons of different treatment outcome measures and recommends standards for the next generation of tobacco cessation treatment research. One critically important component of this effort is work that will focus on adolescent treatment outcome measures. This grant will support analysis of existing data to guide the proposal of youth appropriate treatment outcome measures and support for travel for five experts on adolescent treatment.
