Tobacco smoke exposure in pediatric cystic fibrosis: a qualitative study of clinician and caregiver perspectives on smoking cessation.
This qualitative study identified barriers and facilitators of smoking cessation in caregivers to children with cystic fibrosis (CF) and outlined potential interventional approaches. Researchers conducted semi-structured interviews with CF familial caregivers who were current or former smokers, and with members of the CF care team, asking about experiences, practices, and prerequisites for a successful program. Findings revealed intrapersonal, interpersonal, and structural barriers to eliminating tobacco smoke exposure in children with CF, outlined opportunities to address these barriers, and made recommendations for a comprehensive tobacco cessation strategy.
