About this study
The study is being done to determine whether an in-hospital intervention using a brief intervention to facilitate quitline utilization will increase quitline utilization by hospitalized smokers, and will increase post hospital discharge smoking abstinence rates.
Study participants will be randomized to receive either a brief quitline facilitation intervention , or a control intervention of a brief stop-smoking message.
The study will also compare healthcare costs and utilization in the first six months following hospitalization between the two groups.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.
