The Short-Term Effects of a smoking prevention program ‘Smoke-free Kids’ Marieke Hiemstra, MSc Behavioural Science Institute Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands Abstract: Adolescence is characterized by a strong increase in smoking: in the Netherlands about 6% of all 10-year olds report lifetime smoking, this proportion increases to 27% among 13-year olds and 63% of the 17-year olds. In the US, an intervention program called ‘Smoke-free Kids’ was developed to prevent children from smoking. Smoke-free Kids is a home-based smoking prevention program for children aged 9-11 years old. We assess the effects of this program in the Netherlands. This talk will evaluate the short term effect of the Smoke-free Kids prevention program on anti-smoking socialization (i.e., frequency and quality of communication, non-smoking agreement, house-rules, availability of cigarettes, perceived maternal influence, anticipated maternal reactions) and smoking cognitions (i.e., attitude, self-efficacy, and social norm). Marieke Hiemstra MSc. is a PhD student at the Behavioural Science Institute of the Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands. She received her Master's in Public Health Research from the VU University Amsterdam in 2008. Her research focuses on the prevention of smoking in children and adolescents and the influences of parents (i.e., parenting). Her research is in collaboration with Rutger CME Engels, Roy Otten, and Onno CP van Schayck. Please feel free to bring your own lunch. More details coming soon!
