The aims of this longitudinal randomized study, based on Prochaska and DiClemente's transtheoretical model, were to test the effectiveness of the Smoke Free Families (SFF) program in reducing primary and second hand smoke exposure in pregnant families. The treatment group received the SFF intervention, the control group received usual prenatal care, and there were 3 data collection points. A sample of 74 African-American low income pregnant women had a mean age of 24, the mean number of cigarettes smoked was 7, and 84% had a incomes less than $15,000 per year. Findings indicated that both groups moved forward in the stage of change and reduced second hand smoke in their homes. Longitudinal RIDIT analysis revealed that there was no significant difference between groups in movement forward in stage of change (ODDS Ratio 9.0; 1.0). The difference between groups in the reduction of second had smoke was tested using a longitudinal generalized estimating equations model and was not significant (p=.33). Mixed-effects ordinal regression analysis revealed that none of the theoretical variables were significant in predicting movement forward in the stages of change. The impact of a usual care control group and multiple data collection points on results will be discussed.
