Smoking is a key driver of health inequalities in the UK and abroad, and a common concern regarding smoking cessation interventions is that they risk exacerbating existing disparities.

This project would aim to explore this concern to identify ways in which smoking cessation treatments and services could be improved to reduce health inequalities, particularly in relation to socioeconomic status (SES).

We anticipate this would include a Cochrane systematic review on the impact of smoking cessation interventions on health inequalities, secondary data analysis from RCTs evaluating differences in effects by socioeconomic status, investigation of current disparities in smoking cessation behaviours using a nationally representative dataset, and qualitative research to investigate barriers and facilitators to smoking cessation interventions in lower SES groups.
