Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The SMART Teens Against the Risks of Tobacco Study was designed to test the feasibility and efficacy of tobacco control intervention methods for employed teens.

METHODS:

A randomized controlled pilot study tested the efficacy of a behavioral intervention delivered between September, 1999, and August, 2000. Baseline and final survey data were collected on 560 teens in four intervention and five control stores.

RESULTS:

Although smoking prevalence decreased and intention to quit increased more among teens in the intervention stores compared to those in the control stores, the differences were not statistically significant.

CONCLUSIONS:

The worksite holds promise as a possible venue for tobacco prevention and cessation interventions for youth although further research is needed to increase the efficacy of interventions for this setting.
