Notes

Abstract: This paper discusses a research study that uses an education program designed to teach young women about the health effects of smoking, secondhand smoke, and the benefits of quitting. The authors used a PowerPoint presentation and a short questionnaire, administered three times-prior to the presentation, directly after the presentation, and two weeks after the presentation-to measure the effectiveness of the program. Scores on the questionnaire increased greatly directly after the presentation, but decreased on the two-week follow-up, making the program slightly effective. Methods are needed to increase retention. Limitations to this study included difficulty recruiting, leading to a small number of participants. Problems with the Institutional Review Board (IRB) delayed beginning and contributed to the difficulty of recruiting for this study. Only one participant did not complete the two-week follow-up.
