Abstract:Introduction: The aim of this study was to increase the (intrinsic) motivation level, attitude, social support and self efficacy of patients receiving a smoking cessation programme at the Medisch Spectrum Twente using feedback of a CO monitor. Methods: Patients planning to quit smoking at the smoking cessation clinic were asked if they would cooperate in this study. Patients were randomly allocated to the experimental (n=21) or the control group (n=18). Patients in the experimental group used the CO monitor and filled in a questionnaire afterwards. Patients in the control group only filled in the questionnaire about ASE and motivation. They used the CO monitor at the third and final appointment. All patients visited the smoking cessation outpatient clinic three times. Changes were measured by the questionnaires measuring motivation, attitude, social support and self efficacy. Results: Use of the CO monitor does not increase motivation, attitude, social support or self efficacy towards abstinence of smoking. Patients think they are less bored when they quit smoking (F = 13.74, df = 2, p = .001). They also expect to be satisfied when they quit smoking. An important predictor of not quitting smoking at the outpatient smoking cessation clinic is: expecting to get irritated, angry or frustrated quickly when quitting at baseline (R² =.141, OR = 1.79, p =.085). Discussion: Use of the CO monitor did not increase attitude, social support, self efficacy or motivation in this study. Motivational levels are high at base-line and remained high. Counselling of the nurses may lead to attitude change. A CO monitor can be a good instrument to detect smoking cessation. It can also be used for patients who find it very pleasant to use or a CO monitor can be useful for patients with low motivation levels.
