This feasibility study aims to develop and test a behaviour change intervention to better support lung health patients in primary health care settings in Nepal. It will recruit 3 primary health care centres (PHCCs) trained in PAL (Practical Approach to Lung Health) in urban and rural Nepal to develop and test the behaviour change intervention.
The study will conduct qualitative interviews with lung health patients and PHCC health workers to understand smoking issues, review evidence of the effectiveness of smoking cessation interventions, identify existing information, education and communication materials, develop and conduct an intervention development workshop with key government stakeholders and health workers, make the intervention more locally appropriate, and test the feasibility of using CO monitors to identify the proportion of tobacco users able to quit.
