Stop-App: Increasing Access and Attendance at Stop Smoking Services


Funder

Arden Cluster Fund

Value

£28,000

Collaborators

Project Objectives

The objective of this project is to develop an evidence based behaviour change app to enhance access and attendance at Stop Smoking Services: the Stop-App. This will be used in NHS and non-NHS community settings. The aim of the app is to increase referral rates, reduce DNA rates and increase 4 week quit rates by virtue of a more motivated sample of attendees.

Research Impact

If proven effective following full piloting and acceptability testing, the app will be embedded in all existing Stop Smoking Service data inputting systems in Warwickshire. It will be introduced and promoted via numerous community settings including children’s centres, the library service, CAB and leisure centres. The app has the potential to be used nationally as part of the Making Every Contact Count initiative.
