What is the Purpose of The WE QUIT Study?
The aim of the WE QUIT (Women Engaging in Quitting Smoking Together) is to evaluate two smoking cessation treatment programs for women. This study is funded by the National Institutes of Health and conducted by researchers at Butler Hospital who are affiliated with the Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
Women aged 18-65 who smoke cigarettes daily, want to quit smoking, and are concerned about gaining weight after quitting may be eligible.
Participation in the WE QUIT study involves an initial screening appointment to ensure eligibility that includes completion of interviews and questionnaires. Eligible women are then assigned to one of two quit smoking treatment programs. Both treatment programs include one 60-minute individual counseling session, eight weekly 90-minute group counseling sessions, one brief telephone counseling session, and eight weeks of nicotine patches.
All participants are asked to complete interviews and questionnaires during the week before quitting ("pre-quit"), at the end of the counseling sessions, and 1, 3, and 6-months after counseling ends. Participants will be compensated up to $175 for full participation in the pre-quit and follow-up appointments.
