Implement your intervention activities
- Collect information and facts pertinent to your intervention
Collect information on the extent of tobacco-related problems and the potential benefits of tobacco prevention and cessation in your area. Facts and figures are the pieces of evidence you need to justify your desire for community change. Also, it will be useful to collect economic information about the costs and benefits of tobacco prevention and cessation in other communities in order to get community and partner support for your intervention. Prepare the materials you will be using to share information with your target population.
- Perform your intervention activities
Delivering your intervention to your target population may include meeting with individuals who wish to quit their tobacco use, or distributing informational materials regarding a telephone support line for individuals who are already trying to quit.
- Revisit your timeline and roles and responsibilities
As you are implementing your intervention activities, it will be helpful to revisit your timeline and the roles and responsibilities that you outlined in the preparation stage to ensure that you are accomplishing all that you set out to do. You may need to revise your timeline and roles and responsibilities as you encounter barriers and challenges.
