UW-CTRI Researchers to Present at SRNT Conference in San Francisco

UW-CTRI staff will present 13 times at SRNT 2019 in San Francisco, via five presentations and eight research posters.

Symposia

1. Leveraging Epidemiological, Ecological, and Clinical Data to Improve Smoking Cessation Rates Among Heavy-Drinking Smokers. Dr. Sara Dermody, chair. Dr. Sherry McKee, discussant. Dr. Adrienne Johnson and Dr. Jesse Kaye, two of the presenters. Symposium 20. Thursday, February 21, 2019, 3:00 p.m – 4:30 p.m.

  • Kaye will present findings from a smoking-cessation trial of varenicline vs. nicotine patch vs. combo-nicotine-replacement, concerning the influence of baseline alcohol use on smoking-cessation outcomes and how those associations vary as a function of treatment conditions.
  • Using data from the same trial, Johnson will focus on the associations between alcohol and other drug use disorders on cessation success, withdrawal and nicotine dependence, as well as response to treatment.

2. New Strategies to Increase the Delivery of Effective Tobacco Cessation Treatment in Primary Care. Madeline Oguss and Dr. Melanie Boeckmann, co-chairs. Dr. Tanya Schlam and Madeline Oguss, two of the presenters. Dr. Anne Joseph, discussant. Symposium 32. Saturday, February 23, 2019, 10:30 a.m. – noon.

  • Oguss will examine the impact of modifying the electronic health record (EHR) EHR in primary care clinics to facilitate clinic staff referring patients to smoking treatment via a 1-click referral system. She will also examine how clinic staffs’ attitudes influence implementation of the modified EHR referral system.
  • Schlam will present data from a large study evaluating whether primary care patients who smoke will continue in chronic care smoking treatment once they relapse following an initial quit attempt. She will report the percent of patients who relapse who are willing to engage in relapse-recovery via a chronic-care treatment, as well as predictors of engagement.

3. Innovative Methods for Research on E-cigarettes. Dr. Jessica Braymiller, chair. Dr. Jessica Barrington-Trimis, discussant. Dr. Megan Piper, a presenter. Symposium 51. Saturday, February 23, 2019, 10:30 a.m. – noon.

  • Piper will discuss findings on the reliability and validity of three e-cigarette dependence measures: the EC Fagerstrom Test of Nicotine Dependence, EC Wisconsin Inventory of Smoking Dependence Motives, and Penn State Electronic Cigarette Dependence Index.
