||Health and economic implications of a work-site smoking-cessation program: A simulation analysis
||Oct. 1996, Vol.38, No.10, p.981-992. 29 ref.
||A simulation model for evaluating the health and economic effects of a work-site smoking-cessation programme is presented. A simulation was carried out on a hypothetical manufacturing workforce of 10,000 employees. Cost-effectiveness and net cost savings were calculated in relation to intervention costs, and behavioural (smoking cessation), health and financial benefits. As a result of employee turnover, approximately half of the programme-generated profits were realized by the community outside the firm. However, smoking cessation was a sound economic investment for the firm, particularly when long-term benefits were included.
