  1. Fulltext. Integrating smoking cessation into routine public prenatal care : the smoking cessation in pregnancy project.

    Article - En anglais



    In 1986, the state health departments of Colorado, Maryland, and Missouri conducted a federally-funded demonstration project to increase smoking cessation among pregnant women receiving prenatal care and services from the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program in public clinics.


    Low-intensity interventions were designed to be integrated into routine prenatal care.

    Clinics were randomly assigned to intervention or control status ; pregnant smokers filled out questionnaires and gave urine specimens at enrollment, in the eighth month of pregnancy, and postparturm.

    Urine cotinine concentrations were determined at CDC by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and were used to verify-self-reported smoking status.


    At the eighth month of pregnancy, self-reported quitting was higher for intervention clinics than control clinics in all three states.

    However, the cotinine-verified quit rates were not significantly different.


    Biochemical verification of self-reported quitting is essential to the evaluation of smoking cessation interventions.

    Achieving changes in smoking behavior in pregnant women with low-intensity interventions is difficult.
