Behavioural support to help South Asians to quit smokeless tobacco

The study aims to investigate and explore the potential gaps in the standard treatment program for tobacco cessation and suggest appropriate modifications and adaptations to make it relevant for cessation of smokeless tobacco products used by south Asian communities in the UK. We will observe and interview cessation advisors followed by a series of expert panel workshops to develop an inventory of modifications in the intervention.
