Abstract
(from the journal abstract) Objective: To pilot a worksite smoking intervention. Methods: Following baseline assessment, participants (N=6378) received cancer risk feedback; 2 annual evaluations were conducted. Results: Using all data, smoking dropped from 13.7% to 8.4% and 9.3%, and smoker's readiness to quit increased. Using complete data, smoking initially increased from 5.7% to 6.7%, but subsequently decreased to 5.3%; the increase in smoker's readiness to quit remained. Being male, younger, and with lower education and self-efficacy predicted smoking. Lower age and higher self-efficacy predicted readiness to quit smoking. Conclusions: These findings support a formal evaluation of a worksite smoking intervention using cancer risk feedback. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved).
