Abstract

To estimate the effectiveness of pregnancy smoking cessation support delivered by SMS text message and key parameters needed to plan a definitive trial. Multicentre, parallel-group, single-blinded, individual randomised controlled trial SETTING: 16 antenatal clinics in England. 407 participants were randomised to the intervention (n = 203) or usual care (n = 204). Eligible women were <25 weeks gestation, smoked at least 1 daily cigarette (>5 pre-pregnancy), were able to receive and understand English SMS texts and were not already using text-based cessation support. All participants received a smoking cessation leaflet; intervention participants also received a 12-week programme of individually-tailored, automated, interactive, self-help smoking cessation text messages (MiQuit). Seven smoking outcomes including validated continuous abstinence from 4 weeks post-randomisation until 36 weeks gestation, design parameters for a future trial and cost-per-quitter. Using the validated, continuous abstinence outcome, 5.4% (11/203) of MiQuit participants were abstinent versus 2.0% (4/204) of usual care participants (odds ratio [OR] 2.7, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.93 to 9.35). The Bayes Factor for this outcome was 2.23. Completeness of follow up at 36 weeks gestation was similar in both groups; provision of self-report smoking data was 64% (MiQuit) and 65% (usual care) and abstinence validation rates were 56% (MiQuit) and 61% (usual care). The incremental cost-per-quitter was £133.53 (95% CI -£395.78 to £843.62). There was some evidence, though not conclusive, that a text messaging programme may increase cessation rates in pregnant smokers when provided alongside routine NHS cessation care.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 21. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 September 2019.
All research outputs
#1,008,762
of 15,923,161 outputs
Outputs from Addiction
#896
of 4,986 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#28,023
of 262,639 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Addiction
#28
of 95 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,923,161 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 93rd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,986 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 20.4. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 262,639 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 95 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 70% of its contemporaries.
