14.1.1 Smoking Cessation (Maryland)

Measure Status: Active

Measurement Category: Category 2: Measuring quality of effort (% of reach; satisfaction)

Service Type: Middle level: enabling services

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: By 2022, increase by 5% the number of pregnant smokers who call the quitline annually.

Numerator: # of pregnant smokers who call the Maryland tobacco quitline

Denominator: N/A

Significance: Women who smoke during pregnancy are more likely to experience a fetal death or deliver a low birth weight baby. Further, secondhand smoke (SHS) is a mixture of mainstream smoke (exhaled by smoker) and the more toxic side stream smoke (from lit end of nicotine product) which is classified as a “known human carcinogen” by the US Environmental Protection Agency, the US National Toxicology Program, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Adverse effects of parental smoking on children have been a clinical and public health concern for decades and were documented in the 1986 U.S. Surgeon General Report. The MDH Center for Tobacco Prevention and Control launched a Pregnancy Rewards Program in 2014, which offers pregnant and postpartum women (up to six months) rewards for series of completed calls with a Quit Coach. Though initially requiring referral by physician, that barrier was removed and now a pregnant smoker can simply call and let the Quitline know that she is pregnant and interested in the rewards/incentive program. This ESM will measure the impact of the Pregnancy Rewards Program and accompanying media campaigns/health communication interventions on the number of pregnant Quitline callers.

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: Increase the number of reproductive-aged female tobacco users (15-44 years) who received online or phone counseling services through the Tennessee Tobacco Quitline

Numerator: Number of reproductive-aged female tobacco users (15-44 years) who received online or phone counseling services through the Tennessee Tobacco Quitline

Denominator: N/A

Significance: Tobacco use is the number one cause of preventable death in the US and six of the top 10 leading causes of death of Tennessee residents were linked to smoking. In Tennessee, 21.9% of adult women smoke (BRFSS 2015). Tobacco cessation during preconception care can prevent adverse birth outcomes associated with prenatal smoking, such as low birth weight and preterm birth. Prenatal smoking rates have significantly declined in Tennessee, yet 14.3% of Tennessee women smoked during pregnancy in 2015. Smoking cessation also prevents nonsmoker exposure to secondhand and third hand smoke. Telephone-based cessation services like the Tennessee Tobacco Quitline adopt a public health-oriented approach by not only helping tobacco users who desire to quit, but also by actively promoting cessation among the general population.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Tennessee Tobacco Quitline Vendor Reports. Due to Tennessee’s external operation of the Quitline (current vendor is based out of state), data are not available in-house.

14.1.1 Number of pregnant or breastfeeding women who called the Quitline for cessation services (Idaho)

Measure Status: Active

Measurement Category: Category 1: measuring quantity of effort (counts and "yes/no" activities)

Service Type: Middle level: enabling services

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: Increase utilization of the Idaho Quitline among pregnant women and thereby increase the percentage of pregnant women who have attempted to quit smoking in the past 12 months

Numerator: Number of pregnant or breastfeeding women who called the Quitline for cessation services

Denominator: Not Applicable

Significance: In 2015, 10.7% of Idaho pregnant women reported smoking while pregnant, and 13% of all Idaho women aged 18 and older were smokers (BRFSS, 2015). Idaho ranks 25th highest in the nation for tobacco use among pregnant women. To address the priority need of decreasing substance abuse, specifically tobacco use, among MCH populations, the MCH program will leverage the work currently underway by the Infant Mortality CoIIN team to reduce smoking among pregnant women and women of reproductive age. According to the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (2013), offering pregnancy specific and postpartum Quitline services to women is a recommended strategy to improve smoking cessation. In 2015, the Idaho QuitLine implemented a Pregnancy Cessation Program, which offers up to 10 calls during pregnancy and postpartum for women who want to quit smoking compared with the 5 calls for the general population. This program also provides participants with a $5 incentive card for each session they participate in before birth and $10 for each session after the baby is born. This enhanced program includes several intervention calls in the two-week period following a quit attempt, one just before the due date and two calls within two months after the baby’s delivery. These calls help the participant to develop skills to remain tobacco free and to reduce the health risks to the baby from exposure to secondhand smoke. Pregnant women may request nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), however they must obtain approval from their primary care provider. Up to 8 weeks of free NRT is offered through the Idaho QuitLine, if approved through their primary care provider. Any pregnant or new mother that expresses interest in quitting tobacco through the QuitLine is automatically referred to the new 10-call Pregnancy Program.

Numerator: Number of health professionals trained on tobacco risks and cessation interventions as it relates to risks associated to maternal and infant exposure to tobacco per state fiscal year.

Denominator: NA

Significance: Tobacco use is one of the most preventable risk factors of poor birth outcomes. Smoking during pregnancy increases the risks of spontaneous abortion, ectopic pregnancy, cancers, stillbirth, premature birth, stunted growth, cleft palate, low birth weight, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). As of 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that Texas is one of the better performing states for maternal smoking, largely due to the higher number of births to Hispanic women who are less likely to smoke. However, there is geographic disparity in this behavior with higher rates of maternal smoking in the north and east of the state.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Data source: DSHS Maternal and Child Health Section (MCHS) and Tobacco Prevention & Control Branch (TPCB). State fiscal year data for number of health professionals trained will be collected from the following program: 1. OPE Module: Preconception and Prenatal Health: Identifying and Intervening in High-Risk Behaviors The goal of this module is to equip Texas Health Steps providers and other health-care professionals to improve the preconception and prenatal health of women in Texas. Target audience is primary care providers and other health professionals who treat adolescent and adult female patients who may become pregnant again or for the first time. This module discusses the risks of tobacco use and smoking during pregnancy, provides examples of smoking cessation interventions, and provides listed resources for smoking cessation. 2. CHW Trainings. Trainings will address the needs of maternal and child health by expanding the number of CHWs that are educated about the hazards of tobacco to maternal and child health populations in order to better serve their communities and educate women about the hazards of tobacco and cessation support. 3. NAPPSS-IIN - In early 2018 DSHS was chosen to represent Texas as one of five pilot states in the National Action Partnership to Promote Safe Sleep Improvement and Innovation Network (NAPPSS-IIN). DSHS will provide outreach and technical assistance to the selected pilot hospital to support the creation, testing and implementation of the NAPPSS-IIN safe infant sleep and breastfeeding care bundle. One critical element of the bundle is health care professional (provider) training to increase knowledge and skills around policies and practices for optimal safe sleep and breastfeeding; smoking prevention and intervention will be part of this training. Healthy Texas Babies Community Coalitions: DSHS support 8 perinatal community coalitions across the state to engage local stakeholders and communities in evidence-based interventions

Denominator: N/A

Significance: Promoting increased use the state-funded quitline is included in the April 2016 Sample Strategies and Evidence-Based or Informed Strategy Measures compiled by the Strengthen the Evidence for Maternal and Child Health Programs Initiative and is a strategy supported by the associated Environmental Scan of Strategies for NMP #14.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Source: QuitLogix Tobacco Quitline database (New Hampshire), operated by National Jewish Health Total number of quitline calls received is defined as: 1. linked to NH birth record AND... 2. Up to 3 months prior to estimated conception date OR 3. During pregnancy OR 4. Up to 3 months after live birth Establish cohort of NH mothers with live birth in 2017. This allows a full assessment of the time window (see above) around pregnancy. Linkage to birth certificate data is possible for pregnancies resulting in a live birth (NH residents). Timing of quitting may be prior to the pregnancy, during pregnancy, or postpartum. Pregnancies not resulting in a live birth may not be captured, though the system does have a data field to capture responses to question regarding currently pregnancy (very small number flagged for 2015). Time window of three months prior to pregnancy through three months after live birth narrows the cohort of mothers (by about 50%) who can be comprehensively assessed for this measure. De-duplicate mothers (i.e. adjust for multiple births). Can provide context by citing percent of cohort reporting smoking on birth certificate, but this is not appropriate to use as a denominator due to data quality. Analysis of NH birth records and PRAMS data show significant underreporting of smoking on the birth certificate.
