The Quit by Phone Study is conducted by the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC) at UNSW Sydney. The study is looking at different types of telephone-based behavioural quit support services to determine which is the most effective and cost-effective at helping low-income smokers quit tobacco smoking and remain quit.
The behavioural quit support services included in the study are:
- Tailored Text Message (TTM) program consisting of text message-based quit support
- Standard Quitline (SQ) quit support service consisting of the NSW Quitline telephone quit support services
We are looking for adult smokers who are located within 150km of the Sydney CBD, who receive a government pension or allowance to take part in the Quit by Phone Study.
