Unable to Quit? What about Harm Reduction?

About This Clinical Trial?

Welcome to the Cessation and Relapse Prevention (CARP)Clinical Trial

About this Clinical Trial

This clinical trial seeks to determine if people with complex medical conditions that smoke are able (in combination with quitline support) to stop smoking using replacement nicotine based vaping technology in comparison to those that use standard practice short term NRT therapy like Nicotine patches, gum or lozenges.

Who is eligible to join the Trial

We are recruiting 810 participants living in Australia that have a combination of medical conditions that are known to increase susceptability to smoking related illness. There are 6 broad groups that each have a subquota of specific medical combinations within each group.
