Current expressions of interest

The Sax Institute is commissioning a rapid review of evidence for smoking quit lines. Expressions of interest close on 4 October 2018.

The review will address the following questions:

  1. What are the key components of dedicated telephone counselling services (quit lines) and face-to-face counselling services that have been shown to be effective for smoking cessation?
  2. What are the enablers of or barriers to the delivery of effective service components identified in question 1?

A draft report is required by 28 November 2018 and a final report by 7 January 2019.
