New tobacco portal aims to help reduce smoking among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
A new Tackling Indigenous Smoking portal has been launched as part of the Health Department’s Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) Programme. Produced by Edith Cowan University’s Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet, the portal is one component of the programs run by the National Best Practice Unit for Tackling Indigenous Smoking (NBPU TIS) of which the HealthInfoNet is a partner.
The free-to-access online portal is the ‘go to’ place for Tackling Indigenous Smoking Workers to access the Tackling Indigenous Smoking Resource and Information Centre (TISRIC). It also contains a comprehensive collection of videos and programs, and workforce information such as conferences, jobs, courses and other events. The social media platforms also provide an opportunity for the workers to network and support each other.
