Case Studies in Tobacco Control Policy Development: Lessons Learned and More to Do

In this session, we will present case studies to provide an overview of the development of smoking restriction policies in the United States and Canada. The case studies will allow us to explore differences in the development of policies depending on whether they are rural vs. urban, state / provincial vs. national, or comprehensive vs. less comprehensive. We will examine the role of advocacy coalitions, including the tobacco industry, in the development of the policies. The role of research evidence in tobacco control policy development will also be described. Findings from the session will enable public health advocates to identify factors that could contribute to the success or failure of tobacco control policy development. The discussion will focus on lessons learned from the case studies, including strategies that can be used by public health advocates to maximize the chances of developing, in their local situation, comprehensive smoking restriction policies
