Tackling Indigenous Smoking

“No Durri for this Murri® TIS Team”

The NCACCH Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) “No Durri for this Murri®” program aims to 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.

The Djum Baal Challenge is a fun educational interactive activity that aims to share knowledge about the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle and the consequence of not. It covers subjects like the effects of smoking, eating healthy and cyber bullying to name a few. This activity is delivered in schools and is aimed at children from year 4 to year 7 and is inclusive to all students in that year level.
