Barriers to QuitLine Reach to varied populations Those in underserved populations Those who would rather not use the telephone as their means of smoking cessation support To receive NRT, the participant has to have a phone # so that they can receive coaching and an address to send the NRT product to
Approaches to Barriers Increased marketing efforts in underserved populations Coordination with physician communications Varied marketing efforts to underserved populations that are language and culture specific Broader cessation support products Face to face programs New interactive Internet program
Program Offered in English and Spanish Approximately 25% of the National Jewish Quitline staff bilingual.
