Smoking Cessation in Lung Cancer Screening: Integrated Digital/Clinical Approach

Grant Summary:

Little is known about how best to deliver smoking cessation treatment in the context of lung cancer screening. This multi-site randomized trial tested the effectiveness of EX – alone and in combination with smoking cessation treatment by a Tobacco Treatment Specialist counselor – compared to an Ask-Advise-Refer usual care control condition among patients who presented for lung cancer screening at Mayo Clinic. The study was designed to answer key questions of importance to decision makers, including the potential for adoption of a combined digital-clinical smoking cessation treatment approach in lung cancer screening clinics.
