STUDY: A financial incentive to help stop smoking ...

The CHU Nantes maternity hospital is looking for pregnant women who want to stop smoking during pregnancy, who are willing to take part in a study.

gro1Various studies have shown that nicotine replacement therapy is less effective in stopping smoking in pregnant women than in all-out smokers. Hence the idea of ​​alternative means, without undesirable effects for the health of the mother or the child. A new study, carried by the Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris, with the financial support of the National Cancer Institute, creates a financial incentive as a stop aid. It will be carried out in 16 maternities of France, including that of the University Hospital of Nantes. During 36 months, this study predicts 3 at 5 consultations for smoking by a volunteer pregnant woman until delivery, and a phone call back in the next 6 months.

Volunteers will be randomly divided into two groups: a control group " and one " treatment group - financial incentive". Financial incentives will take the form of vouchers, valid in a large number of stores (with the exception of buying tobacco or alcohol).

Women who wish to participate in the study must be pregnant less than 18 weeks (4 months and a half), have 18 years or older, smoke at least 5 manufactured cigarettes a day or 3 cigarettes rolled a day, be strongly motivated to stop to smoke, do not use electronic cigarettes during this pregnancy, do not use other tobacco products (pipe, cigar, oral tobacco) than cigarettes.
