Congratulations to Drs Matthew Jones, Kasia Campbell and Ravinder Claire from the Smoking in Pregnancy Research Group, part of the Centre for Academic Primary Care. Their work underpins key recommendations for helping pregnant women to stop smoking, made in new NICE guidance, “NICE guideline NG209 Tobacco: preventing uptake, promoting quitting and treating dependence”
NICE used Matthew’s Economics of Smoking in Pregnancy (ESIP) model to justify three new recommendations. Kasia and Ravinder both produced Cochrane reviews which led to new recommendations, and an intervention study of Kasia’s helped NICE decide an appropriate cut point for clinicians to use when identifying women who smoke through exhaled carbon monoxide measurement.
