Wu L, He Y, Jiang B, Zuo F, Liu Q, Zhang L, Zhou C, Liu M, Chen H - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Although various effective interventions are available to help individuals quit smoking, the effect of educational levels on cessation rates has rarely been studied, and of the few intervention studies on this topic, the results have been conflicting.The results were opposite for the FCF group.The corresponding results for the highly educated smokers of the FCF group were 25.0%, 17.2% and 10.3%, respectively, which were lower than those for the smokers of low education levels (28.3%, 22.9% and 18.1%, respectively).

BMJOPEN2015007885F1: Attrition flow chart.

Mentions: From 22 October 2008 to 31 August 2013, 547 eligible smokers were seen. By 31 August 2014, 407 smokers had completed the 12-month follow-up process, and 140 smokers (18.8% in FC, 28.1% in FCF, and 25.6% in total) did not participate in the follow-up session, primarily due to lack of contact (figure 1). These 140 individuals shared similar baseline demographic features and other characteristics with the 407 clients who completed the 12-month follow-up process (see online supplementary appendix table S1).
