KIQNIC Team is Developing Tools for Distribution to Quitline Community

The KIQNIC (Knowledge Integration in Quitlines: Networks that Improve Cessation) project wrapped up its third annual survey in August. Data cleaning is almost complete on the 2011 survey data, and the preliminary figures show that 155 individuals completed the survey. This translates into 85 of 97 (87.6% of) possible organizations participating and 63 of 65 (96.9% of) possible quitlines participating. Principal Investigator Scott Leischow expressed the research team’s gratitude, "We are really thrilled with the high response rate, which is critical to social network analysis projects. This means that we should have a pretty accurate snapshot of information sharing across the quitline community in the past year. It also means that we should be able to provide helpful information back to the quitlines based on the data we collected.”

The research team is collaborating with the NAQC KIQNIC Workgroup to develop tools that will aim to help NAQC members better understand how information about quitline practices is shared throughout the network of quitlines. Workgroup members are also helping the researchers develop additional resources for quitlines based on the data that have been collected. The first of these resources will be released early in 2012, and will be publicized here in Connections and also on the KIQNIC website.
