Self-administered questionnaire

Life Stage:

Adult

Participants:

Men and women aged 55 to 74 years old* who are current or former smokers

*While this questionnaire was used in a study of men and women aged 55 to 74 years old, the Cancer Working Group deems it appropriate to use with the adult general population.

Specific Instructions:

These questions are only asked of current or former smokers. In order to exclude nonsmokers, the Cancer Working Group recommends adding a filter question. The recommended filter question can be located in the PhenX Toolkit. Please see question 1 of the Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Substances measure Tobacco - Smoking Status (Adult Protocol).

Selection Rationale

It is well documented that quitting smoking can take multiple attempts. This protocol captures current and past efforts to quit smoking, including information on the use of prescription medicines, as well as whether the respondent has been advised by a health care professional to quit.
