Seminar Summary

In February we put out a call for abstracts in search of your “success stories” highlighting partnerships that helped to move evidence-based interventions into practice. Congratulations to this month’s presenters who were selected to share insights on a top public health priority: smoking and tobacco control. 

This cyber-seminar highlights two evidence-based tobacco control programs and the strong partnerships that fostered their development, implementation, and sustainability. The first will describe an effort to adapt Enough Snuff, a self-help smokeless tobacco cessation program, in rural Northwest Pennsylvania. The second presentation will explore the cultivation of successful community-academic partnerships to deliver tobacco control services to pregnant and postpartum women in high risk communities in New York City and Long Island.

Both programs demonstrate how evidence-based tobacco control interventions can be adapted and implemented with “fit and fidelity” at the community level to meet the specific needs of high-risk populations. Please join us as we discuss this important topic and see what work is being done at the local level to move tobacco control research into practice.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the cyber-seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the model for using partnerships to translate tobacco control research into evidence-based community practice.
  • Discuss the benefits of using partnerships to plan, implement, evaluate, and sustain tobacco control programs.
  • Describe strategies used to implement tobacco control interventions with fit and fidelity.
  • Understand the factors involved in and the challenges related to fostering successful partnerships to deliver tobacco control services to high risk, underserved communities.
