Adolescent Health in Pediatric Practice (AHIPP)

Protocol Overview

Practitioners will be randomly assigned to one of two groups:

One group will receive training about a tobacco screening and brief counseling intervention based on the Public Health Service (PHS) 5A’s Guidelines, and incorporating information from the PHS 2008 Update of the Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence Clinical Practice Guideline.

The other group will receive training about a media-use screening and brief counseling intervention, based on AAP guidelines for media use in children. This training will focus on common issues among social media users, such as balance, boundaries and communication with parents. 

We will ask participating practitioners in both groups to:

Complete a teachback call about the training materials

Complete both a practitioner baseline and follow-up survey

Your practice may be asked to participate in a site visit. You and your staff may be asked about training and the training materials

Your study coordinator will be trained to recruit and consent 100 adolescents (14 years or older), regardless of smoking status to participate in the study. The study coordinator will also complete ancillary study forms such as recruitment and enrollment logs

Your practices' participation in the study will last approximately 3-4 months

Participating adolescents will be asked to:

Fill out a baseline measure at the time of their visit to their pediatrician’s office.
All self-reported smokers and 10% of non-smokers will be asked to participate in three follow-up phone interviews, at 4-6 weeks, 6 months, and 12 months after the initial visit.
