Project Duration: 2008-present
Since 2008, CPHSS has collaborated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Office on Smoking and Health
to develop a set of companion user guides for the CDC's Best Practices for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs
. Aiming to help fill the gap between research and practice, the User Guides translate Best Practices
guidelines into topic-specific, evidence-based strategies and practical guidance for states and communities working to decrease tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure. Recommendations are developed based on information from scientific evidence, literature reviews, case studies, and input from tobacco control experts.
Each User Guide provides practical information through the following organizational structure:
Published User Guides address Coalitions, Youth Engagement, and Health Equity in Tobacco Prevention and Control. User Guides on Program Infrastructure and Health Communications are currently in development.
