Muslim Communities Learning About Second-hand Smoke (MCLASS) is a cluster, randomised, controlled pilot trial of 'Smoke Free Homes' delivered in Islamic religious settings (mosques hosting communal prayers, study circles for women and Qur'an classes for children) with embedded preliminary health economic and qualitative analyses.
The research objectives include: establishing the number of clusters (mosques) and the size of each cluster (participants) required for the main trial, ascertain recruitment and loss to follow-up rates, and other statistical requirements; establishing feasibility, acceptibility and resource requirements for delivering the intervention and assessing outcomes; and understanding the extent to which 'Smoke Free Homes' can be integrated into mosques' routines.
