Quitline Research “Coffee Break” Calls Series Resumes in February

Wednesday, January 11, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

The NAQC "Coffee Break” series is a monthly 30-minute webinar designed to serve as an informal forum to discuss current, upcoming, and potential quitline-related research; facilitate communication and interaction between researchers; and create and support connections between researchers and quitlines. Typically, the presenter gives a 10-15 minute presentation on a newly published research article, a new methodology for conducting research or collecting data, a description of a newly funded study, etc. There are 10-15 minutes at the end of each presentation for questions. The calls are scheduled 2:00 to 2:30pm eastern time on the second Thursday of each month.

The February 9 call will feature Jack Boomer (BC Lung Association) and Frankie Best (BC Ministry of Health) who will be speaking on "Incorporating Social Media Technologies into Cessation Services .” They will talk about the lessons they learned to incorporate social media into their suite of cessation services, experiences they have had to date, and the impact of social media. They will identify potential research opportunities that may be of interest to the quitline community. For more information about their presentation, call-in information, and other future speakers, see The presentation slides and call recordings for past presentations are available here.

We are looking for interesting speakers and relevant topics for our spring 2012 calls. If you are interested in presenting or know of someone you who may like to present, please contact NAQC’s Director of Research, Jessie Saul, at We are especially interested in speakers doing work in the area of health communications, marketing, or economics, as these are areas that are directly related to areas of concern for quitlines, namely graphic health warnings on cigarettes, cost effectiveness calculations for various constellations of services, and sustainability for quitlines.
