NSW Health is funding The George Institute to trial the Can’t Even Quit app. The trial will test the idea that a multi-faceted intervention using the Can’t Even Quit app, when combined with usual smoking cessation support services, will double smoking abstinence rates at 6 months.

This pilot study will be a randomised controlled trial involving approximately 200 Aboriginal smokers. Data will be collected at baseline, 4 weeks and 6 months by a project officer who is blinded to group allocation.

Eligible participants are consenting Aboriginal people (aged over 16 years), with access to an Android or iOS phone and who are willing to make a quit attempt in the next month.

Plans for further testing, as well as the future availability and distribution of the app, are subject to the results of this trial.
