Completed • Determined priority areas w/input from the National Advisory Council of the APINCSN • Survey development based on priority areas; paper survey and a secure online interface https://www.aapihealth.org/study • All major decisions are done collaboratively marketing/recruitment/data collection in progress • IRB approval at Penn & SFSU NEXT STEPS: translations into Vietnamese, Chinese James D. Park, MD MPH, Fellow, General Internal Medicine, University of Pennsylvania David A. Asch, MD MBA, Robert D. Eilers Professor, University of Pennsylvania Public Opinion About Paying People to Quit Smoking Financial incentives (FI) are effective in achieving tobacco cessation but remain controversial in their use • RCT using experimental survey design, comparing support for a “treatment,” medication, or financial incentive for tobacco cessation • 1,092 surveys collected at transportation depots in Philadelphia • No statistical difference in rate of support among 3 treatment types • Predictors of FI support: Current smoker, age, (internal LOC) • Significance: No disfavor towards the use of financial incentives, versus medications or generic treatment for tobacco cessation. Certain subgroups favor support of financial incentives.
