Tackling Indigenous Smoking

No Durri For This Murri

“No Durri for this Murri®”

 

The NCACCH Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) “No Durri for this Murri®” program aims to provide services, support, and information about tobacco dependence, reducing the harms of smoking, second-hand smoke and successful quitting for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander clients within the Sunshine Coast and Gympie region. The program will also offer advice, tips and education around the harmful effects of passive smoking, as well as smoking in the house and car around our young ones.

Working within the Tackling Indigenous Smoking national guidelines, NCACCH utilises a multi-level population health approach for its smoking cessation program. This approach includes regional health promotion activities delivered in community settings in collaboration with other local stakeholders. Additionally, in considering the need for an integrative approach to Tackling Indigenous Smoking, NCACCH provides opportunities to build the capacity of primary health care practitioners to deliver and refer to appropriate services to support community members to quit smoking.

NCACCH clients that are referred to the “NDFTM®” program will be engaged by one of our TIS workers. The following supports will be offered:

  • Quitline referral – Quitline offers clients up to 12 weeks free NRT and culturally appropriate over the phone support;
  • Information about our “Let’s Clear The Air” – Smoke-Free Places Pledge;
  • Quit packs including “NRT – How to Use” sheets and other information; and
  • Invite to “ND4TM®” Smoking Support groups, events, and activities.
