​​Counselling and Psychosocial Approaches  Research Gaps


The following research gaps are included in CAN-ADAPTT's guideline and have been approved by the Guideline Development Group (GDG).

·   When should the topic of smoking be raised if a patient/client is dealing with multiple stressors? When is the optimal time to advise someone to quit and how does a professional recognize this "optimal time"?
·   Social network research and how this can be used in practice
·   Research on the social impact of smoking withdrawal (what has been successful in assisting people to maintain their social network?)
·   Effectiveness/efficacy of interventions and referrals to programs
·   Effectiveness of alternative treatments (i.e. hypnosis, laser therapy)
·   The frequency and timing of health professional interventions when it comes to the effectiveness of brief provider interventions, by more than one type of health care provider.
