Long-term effectiveness of two Dutch work site smoking cessation programs.
This article reports on one of the few experimental studies in Europe to examine work site smoking cessation.
The study examined whether a comprehensive intervention (self-help manuals, group courses, a mass media campaign, smoking policies, and a second-year program) is more effective than a minimal intervention (self-help manuals only).
Eight work sites participated in the study.
The effect of treatment on smoking cessation depended on nicotine dependency levels : Heavy smokers had more success with the comprehensive smoking cessation intervention than with the minimal intervention (with respect to both 14-month quit rate and 6-month prolonged abstinence).
For heavy smokers, exposure to mass media exhibitions or to group courses had a beneficial effect on prolonged abstinence.
Comprehensive programs may be most appropriate in Dutch work sites with large proportions of heavily addicted smokers.
