Current Research

Graeme is research coordinator for the UK Centre for Tobacco Control studies and has assisted in the initiation/set up of many projects, in particular dealing with Ethics and NHS permissions for research. He has had substantial involvement in the following projects, working with other UKCTCS researchers:

  • A randomised control trial of a telephone 'quitline' investigating two types of cessation support and the option of 'no cost' nicotine replacement therapy (the PORTSSS trial).
  • An action research project using qualitative methods to explore smoking in a deprived community in Nottingham with a view to implementing interventions to decrease smoking prevalence in the area.
  • Future research is likely to include quantitative analysis of existing datasets to explore the concept of 'hardening' in smokers who cannot or do not want to quit.
