Financial incentives improve smoking cessation rates during pregnancy (CPIT III)

Clinical Question

Can giving a pregnant person substantial financial incentive to quit smoking improve verified cessation?

Bottom line

Providing graduated financial incentives to older, multiparous pregnant persons doubles the rate of not smoking throughout the pregnancy (27% vs 12%). However, almost all patients will start smoking again within 6 months after delivery. 2b
