This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: The primary objectives are to summarise the evidence from Cochrane Reviews that assessed the effect of behavioural interventions designed to support smoking cessation attempts, and address the following two questions: How do modes of delivery, person delivering the intervention, and the behavioural and motivational components of behavioural interventions for smoking cessation compare with each other in achieving abstinence at follow-up of six months or longer? Do the effects of behavioural interventions vary by other characteristics, including population, setting, and length of intervention? The secondary objective of this review is to summarise the availability and principal findings of economic evaluations of behavioural interventions for smoking cessation, in terms of comparative costs and cost-effectiveness, in the form of a brief economic commentary.
