  • Measurement and Methodology for Daily Patterns of Drug Use and Related Behaviors

    New

    PI: Yuh-Pey Anne Buu, PhD, PhD

    Thanks to new technology, prospective data collection using the interactive voice response (IVR) system and text-messaging (TM) has become possible in recent years. These new measurements have the advantages of cutting costs of staff time as well as minimizing recall bias and tendency to underreport socially undesirable behaviors. The long-term goal of this project is to abstract crucial information from daily process data of health risk behaviors to inform prevention and intervention. The overall objective of this application, which is the next step toward attainment of our long-term goal, is to develop cost-effective measurement and cutting-edge methodology to collect and analyze daily process data.

  • A Pilot Study of Positively Smoke Free on the Web (PSFW) for HIV-infected Smokers

    PI: Jonathan Shuter, MD

    The epidemic of cigarette smoking is fueling an alarming rise in lung and other cancers in persons living with HIV. Smokers living with HIV have few, if any, cessation resources available to them that address their particular needs, and HIV care providers have virtually no studies upon which to adopt an evidence based approach to achieving abstinence. The study attempts to address this serious health disparity by harnessing the enormous reach and power of the internet. (09/25/2011 - 09/30/2013)
