BACKGROUND Both behavioural support (including brief advice and counselling) and pharmacotherapies (including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), varenicline and bupropion) are effective in helping people to stop smoking. Combining both treatment approaches is recommended where possible, but the size of the treatment effect with different combinations and in different settings and populations is unclear. OBJECTIVES To assess the effect of combining behavioural support and medication to aid… 

Figures from this paper

Additional behavioural support as an adjunct to pharmacotherapy for smoking cessation.
TLDR
Evaluated the effect of increasing the intensity of behavioural support for people using smoking cessation medications, and to assess whether there are different effects depending on the type of pharmacotherapy, or the amount of support in each condition.
Additional behavioural support as an adjunct to pharmacotherapy for smoking cessation.
TLDR
There is high-certainty evidence that providing behavioural support in person or via telephone for people using pharmacotherapy to stop smoking increases quit rates and indicates that increasing the amount of behavioural support is likely to increase the chance of success.
Smoking Cessation Treatment for Patients With Mental Disorders Using CBT and Combined Pharmacotherapy
TLDR
Pharmacological treatment associated with group CBT based on cognitive-behavioral concepts and combined with ongoing MD treatment seems to be the best option for smoking cessation treatment among patients with MD.
Utilisation of Nicotine Replacement Therapy within a Hospital Pharmacist Initiated Smoking-Cessation Intervention – A Pragmatic Randomised Controlled Trial
TLDR
Evaluating the effectiveness of a hospital pharmacist initiated smoking-cessation intervention (SCI) in increasing the utilisation of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) in hospitalised smokers, and in increasing quit rates post-discharge found no clear effect on cessation rates at three months.
Behavioural interventions for smoking cessation: an overview and network meta-analysis.
TLDR
Behavioural interventions for smoking cessation can increase quit rates, but effectiveness varies on characteristics of the support provided, as analyses from the contributing reviews and from the CNMA showed.
Behavioural interventions for smoking cessation: an overview and network meta-analysis
TLDR
A review of the evidence from Cochrane Reviews that assessed the effect of behavioural interventions designed to support smoking cessation attempts to address the following two questions: How do modes of delivery, person delivering the intervention, and the behavioural and motivational components of behavioural intervention for smoking cessation compare with each other in achieving abstinence at follow-up of six months or longer.
Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews Behavioural interventions for smoking cessation: an overview and networkmeta-analysis (Protocol)
TLDR
This review is to summarise the availability and principal findings of economic evaluations of behavioural interventions for smoking cessation, in terms of comparative costs and cost-effectiveness, in the form of a brief economic commentary.
IntEgrating Smoking Cessation treatment As part of usual Psychological care for dEpression and anxiety (ESCAPE): protocol for a randomised and controlled, multicentre, acceptability, feasibility and implementation trial
TLDR
A randomised and controlled, multi-centre trial to test the acceptability, feasibility and implementation of smoking cessation treatment as offered alongside usual IAPT care, compared to usual care alone, with nested qualitative methods.
Effectiveness of smoking cessation interventions in dental settings: A randomized controlled trial
TLDR
MI plays a significant role in smoking cessation and offers benefits comparable to pharmacotherapies and hence can be used as an integral part of smoking cessation interventions.

Behavioural interventions as adjuncts to pharmacotherapy for smoking cessation.
TLDR
Providing behavioural support in person or via telephone for people using pharmacotherapy to stop smoking has a small but important effect and increasing the amount of behavioural support is likely to increase the chance of success by about 10 to 25%, based on a pooled estimate from 38 trials.
Additional behavioural support as an adjunct to pharmacotherapy for smoking cessation.
TLDR
Evaluated the effect of increasing the intensity of behavioural support for people using smoking cessation medications, and to assess whether there are different effects depending on the type of pharmacotherapy, or the amount of support in each condition.
Group behaviour therapy programmes for smoking cessation.
TLDR
There was limited evidence that programmes which included components for increasing cognitive and behavioural skills and avoiding relapse were more effective than same length or shorter programmes without these components.
Individual behavioural counselling for smoking cessation.
TLDR
Smoking cessation counselling can assist smokers to quit and fails to detect a greater effect of intensive counselling compared to brief counselling.
Nicotine replacement therapy for smoking cessation.
TLDR
The effectiveness of NRT appears to be largely independent of the intensity of additional support provided to the smoker, and the combination of bupropion and nicotine patch was significantly more effective than nicotine patch alone.
Clinical trial comparing nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) plus brief counselling, brief counselling alone, and minimal intervention on smoking cessation in hospital inpatients
TLDR
NRT given with brief counselling to hospital inpatients is an effective routine smoking cessation intervention.
Pharmacological interventions for smoking cessation: an overview and network meta-analysis.
TLDR
The outcome for benefit is continuous or prolonged abstinence at least six months from the start of treatment, and the outcome for harms is the incidence of serious adverse events associated with each of the treatments.
Effect of Varying Levels of Disease Management on Smoking Cessation
TLDR
KanQuit, a smoking cessation program based on the chronic care model, which integrates principles of disease management into the treatment of smokers seen in rural primary care is developed, which includes counseling and provider feedback.
Variations in treatment benefits influence smoking cessation: results of a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Full coverage of a tobacco dependence treatment benefit implemented in two IPA model HMOs in California has been shown to be an effective and relatively low cost strategy for significantly increasing quit rates, quit attempts, and use of nicotine gum and patch in adult smokers.
Weekly versus basic smoking cessation support in primary care: a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
The absolute quit rates achieved are those expected from nicotine replacement alone, implying that neither basic nor weekly support were effective, and primary care smoking cessation treatment should provide pharmacotherapy with sufficient support only to ensure it is used appropriately.
