  1. Long-term effectiveness of two Dutch work site smoking cessation programs.

    Article - En anglais

    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.
