Smoking Cessation Pharmacotherapy
Principal Investigator: Paula Cupertino, PhD
This project utilizes computer-based touch screen technology to deliver health education about smoking cessation treatments.
“Decidete” is bilingual touch-screen software implemented in three safety net clinics in Wyandotte County, Kansas. This software queries participants about smoking behaviors and educates them on the use of pharmacotherapy and telephone counseling.
After reviewing Decídete, participants reported increased knowledge about smoking cessation resources, and a better understanding of the pros and cons of using pharmacotherapy or behavioral counseling.
