Comparing an Opt-Out to an Opt-In Approach for Smoking Cessation In VA Primary Care Clinics
Funded by: VA Health Services Research and Development
Project dates: August 2018 - July 2023
Principal Investigator: Sherman, Scott
Principal Investigator: Fu S

This project will evaluate whether enrolling smokers in treatment is more effective when using an opt-out approach, so that smokers must choose not to be enrolled, versus an opt-in approach, where smokers must choose to be enrolled.  In addition, it will assess which approach results in greater engagement with the Quitline or text messaging, and which is most cost effective.
