“No Durri for this Murri®”
The NCACCH Tackling Indigenous Smoking “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.
All clients will be linked via referral to ongoing support through Quitline and will be able to gain access to NCACCH free Allied Health services (Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Acupuncture), as well free products to help you quit (Champix, Zyban and NRT products).
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.
