WashU Finds Networking Helps Implement Tobacco-Control Practices

The dissemination of best practices to reduce smoking is more likely when tobacco control partners have an existing contact or collaborative relationship, according to findings from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. Researchers at the Center for Public Health Systems Science assessed tobacco control networks in eight states. It is one of the first studies to examine how interorganizational relationships in a public health network influence the dissemination of evidence-based guidelines.
