ABSTRACT
The article discusses whether an intervention of brief clinician advice during routine medical visits, an interactive computer program, and brief motivational counseling reduce smoking in adolescent smokers and non-smokers over the long term. A randomized controlled trial had been conducted among 2526 adolescents, who were willing to stay after their clinician visit for about 15 minutes and had no intention to leave the geographic area in the next year. It is not possible to "disaggregate the effects of clinician advice, motivational interviewing by a counselor, and computerized self help in this study.
