This research project’s goal was to enhance the design and implementation of family-focused interventions among African-American patients with lung cancer, who smoke, and their family members. Objectives included identifying social, cultural, and behavioral change among African-American lung cancer survivors who are current users of tobacco, or recent quitters, and their family members; and preferences for health promotion (including timing for individual- or family-focused interventions relative to the timing of a diagnosis as well as preferred delivery formats).
