    Current Topics in Tobacco Cessation and Health Disparities Research

    Friday, June 22nd, 2018 12:30 - 1:30 PM US Eastern

    Space is limited so click https://goo.gl/forms/qDr6UqVLPEMvSsTh1 to reserve your free webinar seat.

    Join Dr. Barbara Piñeiro-Neiro (Oklahoma Tobacco Research Center), Dr. Erika Pinsker (California Tobacco Control Program) and Samantha Schiavon (University of Alabama at Birmingham), three early career scholars of the Network, as they present their cutting-edge research on tobacco use and cessation among disadvantaged populations in the United States.

    Barbara Piñeiro-Nero: "Ask-Advise-Connect: Counseling treatment adherence influences quitline treatment outcomes among safety net healthcare system patients" 

                This study presents data from a 34-month implementation trial evaluating an Ask-Advice-Connect intervention in 13 community health clinics designed to address clinic and patient level barriers to Quitline treatment enrollment among low-income populations.

    Erika Pinsker: "Smoking characteristics and cessation among Hispanic veterans participating in a proactive tobacco treatment trial" 

    Dr. Pinsker’s research examines smoking characteristics and cessation outcomes among Hispanic veterans compared with non-Hispanic veterans participating in the Veterans Victory Over Tobacco proactive tobacco treatment trial.

    Samantha Schiavon: "African American smokers with strong social support achieve smoking cessation at higher rates than Caucasians with higher motivation to quit"

                  Samantha’s research assesses how race (Black v. White) moderates the influence of social support on the relationship between motivation to quit and smoking cessation among a group of smokers in a community correctional facility in Birmingham, AL.

    Moderators: Jennifer Cantrell, DrPH, Associate Research Professor at New York University College of Global Public Health, and Melanie Boekmann, DrPH, a postdoctoral fellow at the Medical Faculty of the Heinrich-Heine-University Dusseldorf, Germany.

     

  • Evidence into Policy: UK Approach to E-Cigarettes
    Date and Time: January 29, 2016 at 11:00 AM US Eastern
    Presenter: Hazel Cheeseman, Director of Policy for ASH (Action on Smoking and Health)

    Over the last decade the policy environment around tobacco harm reduction has developed significantly in the UK. This development has been closely informed by the evidence base with a strong reciprocal relationship between research and policy making communities. The policy principles of tobacco harm reduction were established well in advance of the commercial success of e-cigarettes and have played an important part in shaping the UK's response to these products. 

    Rather than recommending a particular policy or approach, the goal of this webinar is to present one country's experience to expand the knowledge base of SRNT members. This talk will seek to outline the basis of the UK's approach to tobacco harm reduction, which is unique in the world, the relationship between policy development and the evolving evidence base, and how evidence is continuing to inform policy as the market around these novel products continues to change.
