Areas for further research


  • Assessing economic aspects of smoking cessation interventions globally, especially in low- and middle-income countries. What would motivate smokers to try to quit more often? Is charging higher health insurance premiums a sufficient motivator for smoking cessation?
  • Studying the impact of tobacco excise tax structure and the resulting degree of tobacco price variation on the motivation for cessation and successful quitting.
  • Assessing price and income elasticities of demand for cessation services will be important to build the case for public health interventions. The evidence base should also be extended to developing countries where economic data are sparse or non-existent.
  • Exploring the access to cessation services from various perspectives (public health agency, societal, and provider) to elicit its effect on demand for and use of smoking cessation services and products.
  • Determining whether intervention effectiveness, costs and cost-effectiveness vary by frequency and intensity of tobacco use.
  • Examining the relationship between higher nicotine dependence and price sensitivity, and between higher nicotine dependence and successful cessation.
  • Determining whether the cost-effectiveness of the least resource-intensive smoking cessation interventions varies depending on socio-economic status.
  • Studying the peer and family effects on the demand for smoking cessation among young smokers.
  • Determining the effect of regulation of NRT and non-NRT products on innovation in the treatment of nicotine dependence.
  • Studying the effect of e-cigarette uptake on smoking cessation.
  • Examining the nature of the relationship between physical exercise and smoking cessation.
  • Determining the characteristics of those smokers for whom extending the duration of pharmacotherapy may promote achievement of abstinence and prevention of relapse.
  • Determine whether wider availability of NRT promotes nicotine addiction among children and others not using tobacco products.
