Testing the Efficacy of an Evidence-Based Smoking Cessation Quitline in Qatar

This project, in collaboration with the Ministry of Qatar, examines the feasibility and preliminary efficacy of setting up a smoking cessation quitline in Qatar. This project will include: setting up an infrastructure for conducting telephone-based cessation service, training counselors in Qatar in evidence-based best practices for smoking cessation, and implementing program evaluation processes to evaluate the program. 150 male Qatari smokers will be recruited for 5-week long smoking cessation intervention. Quit outcomes will be assessed at end of treatment and at follow-up periods. This project is funded by the Qatar National Research Fund.
