Nicotine Tob Res 2021 Jul 27. Epub 2021 Jul 27.

Department of Prevention and Community Health, Milken Institute School of Public Health, The George Washington University, Washington, DC, USA.

JMIR Res Protoc 2021 Jul 27;10(7):e25390. Epub 2021 Jul 27.

Mixed Methods Program, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, United States.

Background: Tobacco smoking is associated with significant morbidity and premature mortality in individuals with serious mental illness. A 2-year pragmatic clinical trial (PCORI PCS-1504-30472) that enrolled 1100 individuals with serious mental illness in the greater Boston area was conducted to test 2 interventions for tobacco cessation for individuals with serious mental illness: (1) academic detailing, which delivers education to primary care providers and highlights first-line pharmacotherapy for smoking cessation, and (2) provision of community health worker support to smoker participants. Implementing and scaling this intervention in other settings will require the systematic identification of barriers and facilitators, as well as the identification of relevant subgroups, effective and unique components, and setting-specific factors.
