“There are therefore 2 major disconnects between research and practice: research may not translate expeditiously to everyday practice, and clinical problems encountered in everyday practice are often under-investigated.” (Tierney et al., 2007)

  • National Network:To create a national network of smoking cessation researchers, policy/decision- makers and practitioners/providers to inform smoking cessation research and practice.

  • Clinical Practice Guideline: build from existing guidelines identify and adapt evidence to the Canadian context through a practice-informed approach

  • Research Agenda:To develop a practice-informed research agenda in key areas of smoking cessation that bridges the gaps between clinical practice, research and theoretical frameworks.

  • Knowledge Translation:To translate research findings into a dynamic set of evidence-based guidelines on smoking cessation.

  • Dissemination and Engagement:To disseminate findings and engage stakeholders from national and professional organizations to promote the adoption of the Wiki-guidelines. 

  • Collaboration:To collaborate with other projects in smoking cessation.

  • Evaluation:To evaluate the system and population impacts of the proposed practice-based research network.

Impact and evaluation

Impact and Evaluation

Can adaptt

Ontario Tobacco Research Unit is conducting a mixed method evaluation.

1. On-line survey of CAN-ADAPTT members:

Initial/baseline survey (February-March 2010)

Follow-up survey (February-March 2011)

2. Case-studies of health professions (interviews):

(1) dentists/dental hygienist; (2) family physicians; (3) pharmacists; (4) nurses

3. Semi-structured interviews with CAN-ADAPTT team

Interviews aim to examine progress in establishing CAN-ADAPTT network, promotion activities to recruit network members, management of the network, processes of revision, update and dissemination of the guidelines

Learning and next steps

Learning and

Next Steps

Challenges guideline development

Challenges: Guideline Development

  • New, experimental process

    • learning curve for team and network members

  • Pharmacotherapy section

  • Applying LOE/GR

    • building from existing LOE

    • GRADE limitations

  • ‘Clinical Practice Guideline’ vs ‘Implementation Guide’

  • Balancing evidence, expert opinion, and network feedback

Challenges engaging a network

Challenges: Engaging a Network

  • Challenges with encouraging use of online platform

    • Learning curve for network members

  • Lack of ‘final’ guideline for providers

  • Support and relationship building

  • Coordinated dissemination & engagement

Next steps

Next Steps

  • Funding beyond March 31/11 not secured

  • CAMH will maintain CAN-ADAPTT website

  • Open to new opportunities to collaborate for funding

  • Next steps for the project could include

    • Wiki platform

    • Revisit traditional methodology for application to a practice-informed guideline

    • Consistent integration of network members in the process

    • Sharing Best Practices (tools/resources etc.)

Lessons learned

Lessons Learned

  • Timing is everything

    • Aligning launch of guideline with other efforts

    • It takes time to build a self-sustaining network

    • Huge need to continue small grant funding to continue momentum and sustain great research work in Canada

    • Knowledge Attitudes Practice

      This is just the beginning…..
