Supporting smokers to quit: driving future strategy by incorporating computer modelling and smokers’ participation

About this event

This event will showcase research findings from three studies on smoking cessation that present perspectives from service users and health care professionals on key drivers for supporting smokers to quit in North East England. It will bring together insights from peer support, lived experiences of heavy smokers in deprived areas, and implementing a ‘stop smoking service’ for hospital in-patients and after discharge.

An innovative approach - computer modelling - will be presented to explore financial incentives to motivate pregnant women to quit. Attendees will be able to discuss solutions to barriers to smoking cessation, as highlighted in the studies, and share this learning to drive future strategy.  

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at anyone with an interest in smoking cessation including colleagues in public health, healthcare, and voluntary and community organisations. This may include commissioners and providers of services, as well as academics and members of the public.
