  • Title
    • We Can Quit 2 (WCQ2): A pilot cluster randomized trial of a peer-led community-based smoking cessation intervention for disadvantaged women in Ireland
  • Summary
    • The recently published We Can Quit2 (WCQ2) pilot study was a pragmatic two-arm parallel-group cluster randomized controlled pilot trial of a peer-delivered community-based smoking cessation intervention (We Can Quit (WCQ) in disadvantaged Irish women. This pilot trial showed that a stop-smoking intervention tailored to a group of women smokers living in SED areas which was delivered by trained local women within their local communities was feasible. Furthermore, although not formally compared, more WCQ women were abstinent from smoking at the end of treatment. The results are relevant to enhance the design of a fully powered effectiveness trial, and provide important evidence on the barriers to deliver a tailored smoking cessation service to SED women smokers in Ireland.

  • Title
    • Implementation of Making Every Contact Count (MECC): developing a collaborative strategy to optimise and scale-up MECC
  • Summary
    • Many chronic illnesses can be prevented if people adopt healthier behaviours. Behavioural change through "Make Every Contact (by a Health Professional) Count (MECC)" is an evidence-based approach to decreasing cancer and other chronic diseases. The Making Every Contact Count (MECC) programme, in the Irish Health Service Executive (HSE), aims to train all healthcare professionals to support patients to make healthier lifestyle choices during routine healthcare contacts. In this multidisciplinary project, the HSE MECC Team and academic researchers work together to create a strategy to optimise expertise and scale-up the implementation of MECC more widely to maximise the chances of programme success.

  • Title
    • SCOPE (Standardised measurement for Childhood Obesity Prevention)
  • Summary
    • This project aims to develop a standardised outcome measurement set (SOMS) including reliable, valid, and appropriate measures of core infant-feeding outcomes that can be implemented in research and practice. Developing a SOMS is timely and critical to enhance synthesis and evaluation of childhood obesity prevention interventions and strategies. This project will develop a stakeholder-informed standardised outcome measurement set for core infant-feeding outcomes to prevent childhood obesity. The measurement set will provide an immediately actionable resource for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to reduce waste and optimise evaluation of childhood obesity prevention interventions and strategies.
