Individualized Smoking Cessation Program

Evaluation of an Intensive Individualized Smoking Cessation Program Delivered by Pharmacists

This study aims to look at the efficacy and impact of a pharmacist-led smoking cessation program. It will assess an intensive program and an abbreviated program, with the latter being evaluated for feasibility in community pharmacies. Participants will be in one of three groups: intensive, abbreviated or usual care. Smoking abstinence rates, quality of life, self-efficacy will be compared. Additionally, a cost-effectiveness analysis will be executed to determine the feasibility of customized smoking cessation programs in community pharmacies across Newfoundland and Labrador.
