||Interactive Videodisc Smoking Cessation Intervention
This project will produce an interactive videodisc-based (IVD) smoking
cessation system for use in medical office settings. The IVD system will
assist providers in helping patients stop smoking, by using an
interactive smoking cessation program. This project will produce a stand-
alone kiosk with printer that is suitable for use in medical offices.
The IVD system offers several potential advantages over other approaches
to smoking cessation, including lower personnel costs, increased
efficiency and efficacy. The effectiveness of the IVD-based intervention
will be evaluated with 500 primary-care patients in a randomized clinical
trial with a "physician-advice-only" control condition.
