NCT ID: NCT00245076

Evaluation of the Impact of a Bulletin Board on a Web-Based Smoking Cessation Intervention
RATIONALE: Stop-smoking information on the website may help people quit smoking and remain a nonsmoker. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well the website works with an electronic bulletin board in helping United States federal employees quit smoking.
OBJECTIVES: - Determine the perception of utility of the current, publicly accessible version of the website and the addition of an electronic bulletin board and its features, including open-ended comments, in promoting smoking cessation among United States federal employees who are currently smokers. - Determine the use of this tool, in terms of average length of time spent on the website, number of page clicks, most popular page clicks, and key interest areas, among these participants. - Determine the changes in smoking habits, in terms of smoking reduction and short- and long-term abstinence, among these participants. OUTLINE: This is an open-label study. Participants are encouraged to use the website as frequently as needed for support and resources while trying to quit smoking and become, and remain, nonsmokers. Participants are invited to provide feedback on the usefulness of self-help guidelines and several other tools. Participants complete questionnaires evaluating the website at study entry and at 1, 3, and 6 months after study entry. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 4,200 participants will be accrued for this study.
