Policy and Practice Brief | May 2020 | English

This final Policy and Practice Brief summarises the findings from the Talking about the Smokes project and the 24 scientific papers we have published since 2015.

Our research shows what is working to reduce smoking in this nationally representative sample of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, communities and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations.

Continued investment by government and health services in reducing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander smoking is important as we have shown improvement is clearly possible and happening now.

Health staff can increase their support for quitting with confidence that their messages will be understood and welcomed.
