Expanding the Reach of a Validated Smoking-Cessation Intervention: A Spanish-Language Trial

Results of a recently completed National Cancer Institute (NCI) funded trial of an
intervention, Forever Free: Stop Smoking for Good, revealed high efficacy throughout the 24-
month follow-up period, further supporting the utility of extended self-help for promoting
and maintaining tobacco abstinence. Investigators have recognized that wide-scale
implementation, and therefore public health impact, would be enhanced by the availability of
a Spanish-language version to reach the largest and fastest growing ethnic minority
population of smokers.

The goal of this study is to address this gap by testing a Spanish-language version of the
validated self-help smoking cessation intervention. If demonstrated effective, the proposed
intervention would represent an easily disseminable and low-cost intervention with
significant public health impact for Hispanic/Latino smokers throughout the United States.
The aims of this project are to test the efficacy of a Spanish-language version of a
validated, extended self-help intervention for smoking cessation among Spanish-speaking
smokers against usual care control. Participants (N = 1400) recruited nationally will be
randomized to the two arms.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Smoking ≥ 5 tobacco cigarettes/week over the past year

- Not currently enrolled in a face-to-face smoking cessation program

- Monolingual Spanish-speaking, or bilingual Spanish-English and prefer receiving
educational health materials in Spanish
