  • Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death and illness, with second hand smoke causing significant short and longer term risks to health. (stgeorges.nhs.uk)

  • For the purposes of this paper, secular trends are defined as patterns or recurring events that are not directly related to smoke-free policy but have the potential to influence policy development. (ed.gov)
  • There are no established protocols to monitor secular trends in the study of smoke-free policy in rural communities. (ed.gov)
  • The purpose of this paper is to (i) describe the development of a protocol to identify and monitor secular trends that may threaten the internal validity of a community-based RCT to promote smoke-free policy development and (ii) describe secular trends identified in the first 2 years of the RCT.
