Research Project Grant

The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to improve the effectiveness and/or implementation of smoking cessation interventions delivered to current smokers who undergo low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) lung cancer screening. The proposed projects must be aimed at determining:

a) the key components and characteristics of an effective smoking cessation intervention delivered in the LDCT setting; and/or

b) characteristics of an implementation strategy to optimally incorporate existing evidence-based smoking cessation intervention(s) into the LDCT setting.

The projects must include prospective, comparative evaluation of the intervention(s) in terms of the rates of cessation and sustained abstinence (6-12 months after cessation) among current smokers undergoing screening. The LDCT screening site must be the essential context for the delivery of the cessation intervention, although interventions may also include services provided outside the site before or after screening.

This project is led by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
