User Guides

Report covers


Since 2008, CPHSS has worked with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Office on Smoking and Health to develop a set of companion user guides for CDC’s Best Practices for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs. User Guides help fill the gap between research and practice by translating Best Practices guidelines into evidence-based strategies and practical guidance that can be used by communities working to decrease tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure. Our writing team bases its recommendations on scientific evidence, literature reviews, case studies, and input from tobacco control experts.

Published user guides include CoalitionsYouth EngagementHealth Equity, Program Infrastructureand Health Communications, a 2019 update to Youth Engagement, Cessation, Partnerships, and Putting Evidence into Practice
