  • Q2: Questions about Quitting

    PI: Jennifer B. McClure, PhD

    About 80% or more of smokers are not sufficiently motivated and ready to quit smoking, even though they may want to quit someday. Interventions are critically needed which can reach these people, enhance their motivation for quitting, promote uptake of existing empirically-validated treatments, and ultimately enhance abstinence rates on a population level. The current study tests the effectiveness of four potentially important tailoring factors (decisional framework, self-efficacy, navigation autonomy, and proactive outreach) to increase motivation to quit.

  • Cancer Risk Perceptions: Highlighting Changes and Time in the Picture

    PI: Brian Zikmund-Fisher, PhD

    This study examines the impact of "status-assessing" email messages sent to individuals who decided to quit smoking and chose a date to quit. Participants receive email messages 3 and 5 weeks after their self selected quit dates, asking them to click on a URL link that matches their current smoking status (quit, tried but relapsed, never quit). Participants who click on a link receive information targeted to their current smoking status. (09/01/2006 - 08/31/2008)

  • Forever Free

    PI: Susan A. Murphy, PhD

    This developmental project tests the effects of expert vs user tailoring and rich vs poor graphical treatment in a brief web-based smoking cessation and relapse prevention intervention. The site's content is based on a series of booklets called Forever Free, developed by Dr. Thomas Brandon at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute. The project is an adjunct to Phase I of Project Quit and is offered to Project Quit participants at the end of that study's 6-month follow-up. (09/01/2003 - 08/31/2006)

  • Tailoring Depth

    PI: Victor J. Strecher, PhD, MPH

    This project runs in conjunction with Phase I of Project Quit. While Project Quit focuses on tailoring messages based on a variety of theoretical constructs, this study focuses on tailoring those messages on a deeper level. Depth of tailoring is another potentially active ingredient in tailoring and refers to the level of detail of tailoring and the extent of the connections made among theory-based constructs.

  • Project Quit

    PI: Victor J. Strecher, PhD, MPH

    Project Quit is a web-based program to help individuals who are in the "Preparation Stage" (ready to quit smoking within 30 days) to quit smoking. The overall goal of the study is to identify optimal population-based health communications strategies tailored to specific characteristics of the individual. This project will focus on identifying and specifying active psychosocial and communication components or "factors" of smoking cessation interventions. (07/01/2003 - 08/31/2008)
