Description:

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: To investigate the evidence for an effect of smoking cessation interventions on smoking cessation and disease activity in smokers with inflammatory joint disease (IJD). Why it is important to do this review: Smoking appears to exacerbate disease activity, pain and deterioration of health-related quality of life in people with IJD. Smoking also further increases the already elevated risk of CVD in people with RA. Together, this impacts negatively on people's well-being, ability to work and medical costs. It is therefore important to identify whether smoking cessation interventions might also benefit disease management, reduce CVD and consumption of medication, and improve quality of life in smokers with IJD. Epidemiological studies have focused on the association between smoking and arthritis, whilst only few studies have examined the direct effect of smoking cessation interventions on smoking cessation and disease activity in people with IJD. This review will contribute to the literature by providing an overview of the evidence for the effect of smoking cessation interventions in people with IJD.
