Purpose: Low income, poorly educated women have high rates of smoking and have limited access to information about the health effects of smoking and availability of resources to assist with cessation. The purpose of this study was to develop and pilot test an interactive computer-mediated smoking cessation educational program for inner-city women. Conceptual Framework: The program was designed to deliver gender-specific quit messages guided by Witte's Persuasive Health Message framework and the Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change. Sample: A convenience sample of 91 women who receive care at an inner-city community health clinic participated in this study. Methods: Subjects completed the computer program in the clinic following baseline data collection. Next, participants completed a brief satisfaction survey. Data on cognitive and behavioral outcomes of the program were obtained at one week. Results: Satisfaction with the intervention was high. There was a significant increase (p=.001) in the frequency of behavioral change processes (e.g., avoiding smoking stimuli) at follow-up. Favorable perceptions of smoking decreased significantly (p=.03) among women in the precontemplation stage. Overall, 13% of subjects progressed at least one cognitive stage of behavior change. Conclusions: Interactive computer technology can be an effective means of promoting smoking cessation in low-income women.
