Partner support for smoking cessation during pregnancy: A systematic review

International Literature

posted by WM Admin on 9 July 2012



This systematic literature review, reported in Nicotine & Tobacco Research, investigated interventions to enhance partner support for pregnant/postpartum women’s smoking reduction or cessation and cessation treatments for the partners themselves.

Based on their findings, they conclude that "... despite the importance of partner smoking, there are very few effective smoking cessation interventions for pregnant/postpartum women that include or target male partners, suggesting the need for further intervention development and research to establish the utility of this approach".
