  • Smoking Cessation Intervention for People with Severe Mental Ill Health: SCIMITAR+ Trial

    This summary plus infographic describes the SCIMITAR+ trial led by the University of York. The study demonstrated that when people with severe mental ill health are provided with a bespoke smoking cessation intervention, smoking quit rates were doubled compared to those who received usual care.

    The NCSCT collaborated in SCIMITAR+, being involved in the intervention design and staff training. We are also involved in SCEPTRE, a follow-up study also led by the University of York.
