Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
CONNECT: Smoking Cessation and Lung Cancer Screening
This clinical trial studies the impact of CONNECT on biochemically confirmed smoking abstinence among diverse current smokers who are undergoing lung cancer screening.
The study team will develop and test a novel smoking cessation intervention, CONNECT, which will start at the time an individual is receiving lung cancer screening (LCS). CONNECT will include an interactive Video Doctor which will provide participants with information tailored to their individual responses as well as proactive outreach using brief telephone calls and text messaging to follow up smokers with motivation enhancement to refer and engage patients in evidence based smoking cessation interventions (such as quitline utilization). After development and usability testing, we will conduct a small feasibility study followed by a pilot randomized controlled trial to estimate the impact of CONNECT on biochemically confirmed 30-day smoking abstinence among diverse current smokers seen at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the University of California San Francisco Division of General Internal Medicine. Participants will be randomized to CONNECT or a control condition. Data will include self-report from participants obtained at baseline, 1 and 3 months, and the electronic health record. Outcomes will be biochemically confirmed 30-day smoking abstinence at 3 months post LCS and satisfaction as well as self-reported quit attempts, and use of evidence-based smoking cessation resources (quitline, pharmacotherapy or counseling). The knowledge gained will provide the pilot data necessary to apply for a larger study to test our novel intervention for promoting smoking cessation among a diverse population of high-risk smokers undergoing Lung Cancer Screening.
