    Study Title:

    Augmented Reality as an Adjunct to Quitline Counseling for Smoking Cessation


    The overall goal of the study is to assess the efficacy of using cue exposure delivered via a smartphone application as an adjunct to Tobacco Quitline treatment to improve smoking abstinence


    Aim 1. Update the existing AR app to be an engaging, user-friendly treatment tool, and verify user satisfaction. Aim 2. Test efficacy of QL+AR over QLO & explore potential moderators and predictors of treatment effects. a. Hypothesis: QL+AR participants will demonstrate higher tobacco abstinence rates six months post enrollment than will QLO participants. b. Potential moderators of interest include sex, nicotine dependence, trait cue reactivity, smoking status during treatment, quitline use, and NRT use. Potential predictors within the QL+AR arm include initial cue reactivity, extinction magnitude and latency, indices of treatment engagement, and AR coach use. Aim 3. Evaluate treatment implementation to guide future quitline adoption, including: a. Cost-assessment and incremental cost-effectiveness analyses comparing QL+AR with QLO. b. Examine treatment engagement and acceptability among those in QL+AR. This will include evaluation of the AR coach. c. Identify facilitators and barriers to incorporating AR treatment into quitline services via qualitative interviews with quitline supervisors, AR coaches, and participants.
