SESSION TITLE: Tobacco Cessation and Prevention

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: Ideally, in the Community Based Participatory Action Research (CBPAR), community members should participate in all research phases. This framework presents multiple advantages such as improving health outcomes and social disparities particularly in low socioeconomic populations. However, operationalization and the extent of community involvement to improve health outcomes are still unclear. Despite significantly higher prevalence of tobacco dependence in drug users and in the marginally housed population, smoking cessation in this population is rarely addressed. Furthermore, no study prior to the PROMPT project (Participatory Research in Ottawa: Management and Point-of-care of Tobacco) has investigated the impact of peer-led programs on tobacco dependence in this marginalized population. The objective is to assess peer researchers’ experiences in participating CBPAR - the PROMPT project, a prospective cohort study on tobacco dependence in the most marginalized inner city population of Ottawa.
