1. Lidón Moyano, Cristina. Evaluation of the impact of Spanish smoking legislation on tobacco consumption and passive exposure.

Degree: Departament de Ciències Bàsiques, 2017, Universitat Internacional de Catalunya

In Spain, two smoke-free laws have been passed after the approval of the FCTC. In 2005, it came into effect a smoke-free legislation (Law 28/2005). This law was a great advance for public health in Spain; however, it was not complete in terms of health protection to secondhand smoke (SHS) exposure because it allowed smoking in hospitality sectors according to size of venues. The scientific evaluation of this law showed the need to promote a total ban and motivate the modification of the law in 2010 (Law 42/2010), extending the smoke-free regulation to all hospitality venues without exception and to some outdoors areas, including hospital premises, educational campuses, and playgrounds. The objectives of this doctoral thesis were: To assess the impact of the Spanish smoking legislations (Law 28/2005 and Law 42/2010) on tobacco epidemic (changes in consumption, dependence, motivation to quit and smoking cessation) among smokers of a general population cohort through self-reported information and biomarkers. To evaluate the impact of the Spanish tobacco control legislation on exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (self-reported and according to levels of cotinine in saliva) on non-smokers in a cohort population. To analyze the changes in the pattern of passive smoking of the non-smokers (displacement of exposure at workplace and leisure time to home) according to age, sex, and socioeconomic level. To analyze the correlation between the implementation of tobacco control policies and tobacco consumption, particularly rolling tobacco, electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) users and the intent to quit smoking in 27 countries of the European Union. To describe the acceptability of the recently implemented tobacco products regulations and to explore their relation with tobacco control legislation levels in Europe. The results of this doctoral thesis has been conducted through seven scientific articles, four of them published in journals indexed in Web of Science and three of them in peer review in journals indexed in Web of Science (please see the Section Scientific Articles of this thesis). Moreover, during my training in this doctoral thesis I got involved in other two articles one published and the other in peer review, both in journals indexed in Web of Science. In conclusion, the implementation of the two smoke-free legislations in Spain is related to a reduction in smoking prevalence and SHS exposure (either using salivary cotinine concentrations or information on self-reported exposure). However, the consumption of other tobacco products, particularly hand-rolled tobacco, has increased specially among young population. A significant increase was found in the salivary cotinine concentration among adult continuing smokers after both Spanish legislations. After the implementation of the two Spanish smoke-free bans, the main setting of SHS is in the leisure time and in work, where most of the exposed ones declared expending most of the time outdoor and not having specific areas for smokers. However, cotinine… Advisors/Committee Members: [email protected] (authoremail), false (authoremailshow), Martínez Sánchez, Jose María (director), true (authorsendemail).

2. Lonergan, Bernie J. Impact of the smoke-free workplace legislation on smoking behaviour, risk perception & stigmatisation.

Degree: 2013, University College Cork

The Republic of Ireland became the first European country to implement nationwide smoke-free workplace legislation. Aims: To determine prevalence of smoking among bar workers and estimate the impact of the smoke-free workplace legislation on their smoking behaviour to that of a comparable general population sample. To approximate the influence of tobacco control measures on risk perception of second-hand smoke (SHS) among the general population. To explore the de-normalisation of smoking behaviour and the potential increased stigmatisation of smokers and their smoking. Methods: Prevalence estimates and behavioural changes were examined among a random sample of bar workers before and 1 year after the smoke-free legislation; comparisons made with a general population sub-sample. Changes in risk knowledge related to SHS exposure were based on general population data. Qualitative interviews were conducted among a purposive sample of smokers and non-smokers four years after the implementation of the legislation. Results: Smoking prevalence was extremely high among bar workers. Smoking prevalence dropped in bar workers and significantly among the general population 1 year post ban while cigarette consumption dropped significantly among bar workers. Disparity in knowledge between smokers and non-smoker of risk associated with SHS exposure reduced. Lack of understanding of the risk of ear infections in children posed by SHS exposure was notable. Evidence for advanced de-normalisation of smoking behaviour and intensification of stigma because of the introduction of the legislation was dependent on many factors, quality of smoking facilities played a key role. Conclusions: Ireland’s smoke-free legislation was associated with a drop in prevalence and cigarette consumption. Disparity in knowledge between smokers and non-smokers of the risk posed by SHS exposure reduced however the risk of ear infections in children needs to be effectively disseminated. The proliferation of ‘good’ smoking areas may diminish the potential to reduce smoking behaviour and de-normalise smoking. Advisors/Committee Members: Greiner, Birgit A., HRB.

3. Staples, Celia Ann Houston. RESTAURANT AND BAR OWNERS AND MANAGERS RESPOND TO NORTH CAROLINA'S SMOKE-FREE LAW, ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE USE INSIDE THEIR BUSINESSES, AND SMOKE-FREE OUTDOOR SEATING AREAS.

Degree: 2015, East Carolina University

This descriptive, cross-sectional study was used to collect and analyze data provided from a pencil and paper survey mailed to a randomly selected group of North Carolina restaurants and bars. The topic of the study was North Carolina's smoke-free restaurants and bars law. The two purposes of this study were: 1) to assess whether, after five years of implementation of the N.C. smoke-free law, restaurant and bar owners and managers receive complaints about the law, and whether they are experiencing the benefits promised when the law was first passed and 2) to explore their actions and interest related to policies that go beyond what is covered in the state law, specifically prohibiting the use of electronic cigarettes indoors and/or providing smoke-free seating areas for customers outside.  A 20-question survey was mailed to 663 restaurant and bar owners/managers. The overall response rate was 20.3% (23% for restaurants and 17% for bars). The total number of surveys analyzed was 135 (86 from restaurants and 49 from bars). All participants acknowledged knowing about the smoke-free law, and the two most frequently selected benefits for restaurants and bars were customers breathing less tobacco smoke (65.2%) and fewer complaints about secondhand smoke (58.5%). Another frequently selected benefit of the law was reduced maintenance and cleaning costs (45.9%). A total of 79.1% of restaurants and 73.5% of bars reported at least one benefit from the smoke-free law.   Further analysis showed that while restaurant and bar owners/managers receive few complaints about secondhand smoke, more than half of bars reported receiving complaints during the last 12 months from smoking customers and employees about not having a place indoors to smoke. Qualitative analysis of comments responding to an open-ended question showed that bar owners and managers tend to be less happy with the smoke-free law than restaurant owners and managers. Bar owners and managers also shared specific problems with the law and recommended solutions to those problems.  Restaurants were found to be significantly more likely than bars to restrict the use of electronic cigarettes inside their businesses, with more than two-thirds of restaurant participants either banning their use inside or limiting their use to designated areas. Restaurants and bars did not show a statistically significant difference in smoke-free outdoor customer areas, with 29% of all participants reporting some smoke-free policy for outdoor customer areas.   A moderate number of participants said they are interested in more information about restricting electronic cigarette use (14.3%) and more information about creating smoke-free outdoor customer areas (18.6%). Trends and interest in both of these policy areas create an opportunity for public health to respond with programs and policy efforts.
