Investigating and Increasing Smokers Use of Effective Cessation Support Book Excerpt:

Tobacco smoking is the leading avoidable cause of death and disability in the world. The UK is unique in that it offers a dedicated smoking cessation service providing behavioural support to all smokers, freely available through the National Health Service and with pharmacotherapy available at prescription cost. The service has been proven effective and cost-effective, yet only a small minority of smokers are currently using these services. The research in this thesis examines smokersÂ' use of support and how more smokers might be identified and encouraged to use it. The first study investigated whether proactive identification of smokers in a primary care setting and referral into such services is a potential means by which awareness and use of services may be increased. As such a study is reliant on the identification of smokers from primary care records and the accuracy of this data, a precursor to this study investigated the completeness and accuracy of smoking status recording in primary care medical records. General practices in this study had a smoking status recorded for between 42.4 and 100% of patients, and comparison of medical records with responses to self-completion questionnaires revealed that this recording is likely to be inaccurate in approximately 20% of cases. Even so, approximately 40% of smokers who responded to the questionnaire were interested in speaking to a smoking cessation advisor when asked, indicating that there is potential to intervene with smokers identified in this way in primary care and that there is a need which is currently not being met. In the trial, all smokers in 12 intervention practices were proactively identified and offered referral into evidence based support, and compared to 12 Â'usual careÂ' control practices, a significantly greater proportion of these smokers reported using local smoking cessation services (16.6% and 8.9% respectively). Validated 7-day point prevalence from smoking at 6 months was higher in the intervention than the control groups, although this difference was not statistically significant (3.5% and 2.5% respectively). Post-hoc analysis in the sub-group of smokers who had initially reported that they wanted to speak to a smoking cessation advisor did, however, reveal a significant difference between intervention and control groups (4.0% and 2.2% respectively). A proactive approach to enrolling smokers in smoking cessation services is, therefore, effective if you can identify smokers who want support for their quit attempt. Use of an NHS support service traditionally involves some degree of pre-planning. Anecdotal evidence from the proactive trial indicated that many smokers did not pre-plan their quit attempts and as recent evidence from elsewhere has indicated that a large proportion of smokers make an attempt to quit smoking without any pre-planning, this may in part explain the relatively low proportion of smokers accessin0g services. The next study therefore was a questionnaire survey designed to investigate the occurrence, determinants and use of support in planned and unplanned quit attempts. The study findings revealed that over one third of quit attempts were made without pre-planning, and over half of these unplanned attempts were made without the use of any support and unplanned quit attempts appeared to be more likely to be successful, in line with previous findings. However, the use of evidence-based support is known to increase the likelihood of a quit attempt being successful and thus for each successful unplanned and unsupported quitter there are likely to be many more who are unsuccessful. There has been no detailed exploration of how unplanned quitters engage in quit attempts, why they may or may not choose to use support and their attitudes to the support currently available. Gaining a greater insight into these factors may result in the identification of better ways to support those who make unplanned quit attempts. The final study therefore involved qualitative research with a group of unplanned quit attempters and revealed that smokersÂ' reports of Â'unplannedÂ' quit attempts may indeed involve elements of planning and delay, and often this delay is in order to gain access to cessation support. The majority of smokers and ex-smokers interviewed were receptive to the idea of support being immediately available whether or not their last quit attempt had involved support. Engaging smokers in using support at an appropriate time, without the need to delay their quit attempt in order to achieve this, may be a potential means of increasing smokersÂ' uptake of effective cessation support and subsequently improving quit rates. It is therefore important to investigate ways in which smoking cessation support can be made available to potential quitters within a much shorter timescale.

ADULT CIGARETTE SMOKERS Book Excerpt:

The purpose of this mixed methods study was to examine how a cigarette smoker learns about and uses an electronic cigarette (EC), perhaps as a way to quit smoking or reduce cigarette consumption. The study focused on evaluating the body connections to smoking and its relationship to the EC, investigating the social and material experiences related to learning to use an EC. Two theories framed this study: embodied adult learning theory and Actor Network Theory. The quantitative portion of the study utilized a longitudinal survey analysis of two surveys: the first survey looking at the use and characteristics of 53 dual EC users and smokers and the second survey analyzing this cohort for changes in EC device use. Qualitative data included two open-ended questions on the survey and in-depth interviews with 16 of the 53 survey participants with emphasis on investigating how a smoker came to know about and learn to use an EC. Qualitative data were analyzed with NVivo software. The findings of the quantitative analysis revealed that 74% of dual users intended to quit smoking with 66% quitting by the follow up. There was a significant difference in EC device use between surveys with quitters changing from a cigalike to mod device (p=0.01). The qualitative interviews added to the quantitative results, revealing three main themes around learning about and using ECs: a) sensory embodied connections to smoking and EC use; b) learning through the synergy of social and non-human systems; and c) using an EC as a step towards quitting. The studys findings provide insight on the intention of EC use and how it changes with experience, and the importance of choice and personalization for ECs to be a step towards quitting smoking. The study provides a model for how adult educators and health care providers can help smokers progress through stages of EC use in their quitting journey. It also offers implications for tobacco regulation, a better understanding of how to balance the issues with ECs while not isolating former smokers who quit with these devices, and suggestions for further research.

The Heart in Rheumatic Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases Book Excerpt:

The prevalence of autoimmune diseases and rheumatic conditions is constantly increasing. Autoimmune diseases affect approximately 7-10% of the population of the United States, while more than 50,000,000 American adults suffer from some type of arthritis. The Heart in Rheumatic, Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases examines the complex mechanisms relating to cardiac diseases from a pathophysiological and clinical point of view. Autoimmune rheumatic diseases can affect the coronary vessels, myocardium, pericardium, heart valves and the conduction system. The diagnosis of these unique cardiac complications necessitates medical awareness and a high index of suspicion. Increased risk of advanced atherosclerosis plays a pivotal role in the development of cardiac diseases in systemic, rheumatic and autoimmune illnesses. Yet, other complex immune medicated mechanisms may contribute to the pathogenesis. Patients' optimal care requires coordination between the primary caregiver, the rheumatologist, immunologist and cardiologist. Screening for cardiovascular risk factors, recognition of high-risk patients and identification of subclinical cardiac conditions are of great importance. Moreover, regulation of inflammation, as well as abnormal immune responses and the initiation of early treatments should be the focus of patient management. A continuous attempt to identify novel therapeutic targets and change the natural history of the underlying disease and its cardiac manifestations is in progress. The book aims at providing the readers with a state of the art collection of up to date information regarding clinically important topics based on experts' perspectives. This book was a result of an extended coordinated collaboration of one-hundred and fifty-four distinguished scientists from thirty-one countries around the globe. A review of common, as well as unusual (yet clinically significant) medical cardiac complications of prevalent rheumatic, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Focuses on aspects of pathophysiological processes, clinical presentations, screening tests, prognostic implications and novel therapeutic approaches. Presents an up-to-date “level of evidence and “strengths of recommendations for suggested therapies and reviews all randomized clinical trials, meta-analyses and other supporting published clinical findings.

Dying to Quit Book Excerpt:

Historians and scientists a few millennia from now are likely to see tobacco as one of the major bafflements of our time, suggests Janet Brigham. Why do we smoke so much, even when we know that tobacco kills more than a million of us a year? Two decades ago, smoking was on the decline in the United States. Now the decline has flattened, and smoking appears to be increasing, most ominously among young people. Cigar smoking is on the rise. Data from a generation of young smokers indicate that many of them want to quit but have no access to effective treatment. Dying to Quit features the real-life smoking day of a young woman who plans to quit--again. Her comments take readers inside her love/hate relationship with tobacco. In everyday language, the book reveals the complex psychological and scientific issues behind the news headlines about tobacco regulations, lawsuits and settlements, and breaking scientific news. What is addiction? Is there such a thing as an addictive personality? What does nicotine do to the body? How does it affect the brain? Why do people stand in subzero temperatures outside office buildings to smoke cigarettes? What is the impact of carefully crafted advertisements and marketing strategies? Why do people who are depressed tend to smoke more? What is the biology behind these common links? These and many fundamental questions are explored drawing on the latest findings from the world's best addictions laboratories. Want to quit? Brigham takes us shopping in the marketplace of gizmos and gadgets designed to help people stop smoking, from wristwatch-like monitors to the lettuce cigarette. She presents the bad news and the not-so-bad news about smoking cessation, including the truth about withdrawal symptoms and weight gain. And she summarizes authoritative findings and recommendations about what actually works in quitting smoking. By training a behavioral scientist--by gift a writing talent--Brigham helps readers understand what people feel when they use tobacco or when they quit. At a time when tobacco smoke has filled nearly every corner of the earth and public confusion grows amid strident claims and counterclaims in the media, Dying to Quit clears the air with dispassion toward facts and compassion toward smokers. This book invites readers on a fascinating journey through the world of tobacco use and points the way toward help for smokers who want to quit. Janet Brigham, Ph.D., is a research psychologist with SRI International in Menlo Park, California, where she studies tobacco use. A former journalist and editor, she has conducted substance use research at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and the University of Pittsburgh

Ending the Tobacco Problem Book Excerpt:

The nation has made tremendous progress in reducing tobacco use during the past 40 years. Despite extensive knowledge about successful interventions, however, approximately one-quarter of American adults still smoke. Tobacco-related illnesses and death place a huge burden on our society. Ending the Tobacco Problem generates a blueprint for the nation in the struggle to reduce tobacco use. The report reviews effective prevention and treatment interventions and considers a set of new tobacco control policies for adoption by federal and state governments. Carefully constructed with two distinct parts, the book first provides background information on the history and nature of tobacco use, developing the context for the policy blueprint proposed in the second half of the report. The report documents the extraordinary growth of tobacco use during the first half of the 20th century as well as its subsequent reversal in the mid-1960s (in the wake of findings from the Surgeon General). It also reviews the addictive properties of nicotine, delving into the factors that make it so difficult for people to quit and examines recent trends in tobacco use. In addition, an overview of the development of governmental and nongovernmental tobacco control efforts is provided. After reviewing the ethical grounding of tobacco control, the second half of the book sets forth to present a blueprint for ending the tobacco problem. The book offers broad-reaching recommendations targeting federal, state, local, nonprofit and for-profit entities. This book also identifies the benefits to society when fully implementing effective tobacco control interventions and policies.

Understanding Marijuana Book Excerpt:

Marijuana is the world's most popular illicit drug, with hundreds of millions of regular users worldwide. One in three Americans has smoked pot at least once. The Drug Enforcement Agency estimates that Americans smoke five million pounds of marijuana each year. And yet marijuana remains largely misunderstood by both its advocates and its detractors. To some, marijuana is an insidious "stepping-stone" drug, enticing the inexperienced and paving the way to the inevitable abuse of harder drugs. To others, medical marijuana is an organic means of easing the discomfort or stimulating the appetite of the gravely ill. Others still view marijuana, like alcohol, as a largely harmless indulgence, dangerous only when used immoderately. All sides of the debate have appropriated the scientific evidence on marijuana to satisfy their claims. What then are we to make of these conflicting portrayals of a drug with historical origins dating back to 8,000 B.C.? Understanding Marijuana examines the biological, psychological, and societal impact of this controversial substance. What are the effects, for mind and body, of long-term use? Are smokers of marijuana more likely than non-users to abuse cocaine and heroine? What effect has the increasing potency of marijuana in recent years had on users and on use? Does our current legal policy toward marijuana make sense? Earleywine separates science from opinion to show how marijuana defies easy dichotomies. Tracing the medical and political debates surrounding marijuana in a balanced, objective fashion, this book will be the definitive primer on our most controversial and widely used illicit substance.
