Seven actions to achieve a tobacco free Western Australia by 2025.

Perth, WA: Australian Council on Smoking and Health (ACOSH)

This document, produced by the Australian Council on Smoking and Health (ACOSH) outlines seven actions to achieve a Tobacco Free Western Australia by 2025, which are:

  • funding for comprehensive public education campaigns
  • reduce smoking among Indigenous Australians and disadvantaged groups
  • stronger legislation to prohibit sales to minors
  • reduce tobacco retail licences and increase fees
  • eliminate community exposure to secondhand smoke
  • prohibit remaining forms of advertising and promotion
  • hold the tobacco industry accountable.

The document also outlines a number of steps to assist these actions.

Tackling Indigenous Smoking Program evaluation: preliminary evaluation report.

Canberra: Australian Government Department of Health

The overall goal of the national Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) program is to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through local population specific efforts to reduce harm from tobacco. The purpose of this preliminary report is to provide a mid-term evaluation of progress to date in implementing the first year of the three year (2015-2018) TIS program. This mid-term evaluation looks at progress to date of the TIS program, particularly in terms of regional grants delivering localised Indigenous tobacco interventions. It does not look at long-term impact in relation to a reduction of smoking rates at a national level.

Findings focus on:

  • the shift to TIS
  • community engagement and partnerships
  • localised health promotion
  • access to quit support
  • contribution to evidence base
  • National Best Practice Unit and TIS portal
  • governance and communications.

A number of key recommendations emerging from the evaluation are included in the report.

Previous studies have indicated that regional and rural Australians demonstrate disproportionately high rates of substance use and that this use is associated with serious physical and mental health issues. To address these issues, this research aimed to implement and measure the effectiveness of the community reinforcement approach (CRA); a version of cognitive-behaviour therapy, adapted for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

Key findings of this project included:

  • substance use was statistically lower at three month follow-up for:
    • alcohol
    • cannabis
    • amphetamine type stimulants, including crystal methamphetamine
    • over-the-counter medications
    • cigarettes.
  • psychological distress was significantly reduced
  • empowerment was significantly increased
  • there was no evidence of a correlation between the number of CRA components received and alcohol outcomes, suggesting shorter CRAs are as effective as longer CRAs.

This article outlines research which examines how the Rudd Government used evidence in Indigenous tobacco control policy making and explores the facilitators of and barriers to the use of evidence-based policy making.

A Framework Analysis method was used to analyse data collected through a review of primary documents and interviews with senior politicians, senior bureaucrats, government advisors, Indigenous health advocates, and academics.

Research found that government policy design was heavily influenced by the recommendations presented in government authored/commissioned literature reviews. However, many of the cited studies had methodological limitations. In the absence of high-quality evidence, policy makers adopted an approach that recognised a need for action with combining innovative strategies to incorporate evaluation of outcomes.

The ATRAC Framework: a strategic framework for Aboriginal tobacco resistance and control in NSW.

Sydney: Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW

This resource has been developed to support the planning, integration and coordination of Aboriginal tobacco resistance and control efforts across New South Wales (NSW). It identifies evidence, key principles and best practice approach to address the smoking rates in Aboriginal communities in NSW.

The ATRAC Framework has been developed to be relevant and useful for a broad range of different stakeholders who play various and important roles in addressing tobacco smoking for Aboriginal people in NSW. These include Aboriginal leaders and communities, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations, government agencies, non-government organisations, and a range of other health and related organisations.

The ATRAC Framework will help to inform decision making about resource allocation, planning, implementation and evaluation of existing and future Aboriginal tobacco resistance and control activities at local, regional and state levels.

The resource was developed in a collaboration between the NSW Ministry of Health and the Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW.

The report shows that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were more likely to be provided with withdrawal management than other Australians, and were around three times as likely to have received pharmacotherapy treatment than the non-Indigenous population. Data for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous Australians is presented throughout the report.

A snapshot of the development of anti-tobacco messages for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities – report from an Australian national survey.

Cairns: James Cook University

This publication reports on a national survey to determine current practices used in the development of tobacco control messages by organisations in Australia providing anti-tobacco programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Forty-seven people from 44 different organisations including Aboriginal medical services, government and non-government organisations, and universities were interviewed about their programs.

This study aimed to fill an important knowledge gap in the way messages and accompanying resources are being produced and disseminated. Analysis of the data gained from the survey will enable contributions towards making future recommendations for best practice. The authors recommend refinement of evaluation, pre-empting cultural challenges, and synergy by partnerships to achieve the goal of closing the gap on Indigenous health caused by tobacco smoking.

Report on government services 2013: Indigenous compendium.

Canberra: Productivity Commission

This publication draws on the Report on government services 2013 to present data specific to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population. It reports on the delivery of mainstream services to Indigenous people including services for:

  • childcare, education and training
  • justice
  • emergency management
  • health
  • community services
  • housing and homelessness.

Performance reporting focuses on the degree to which the objective for a service is met. The report details the objective (outcomes) for each service stated and the performance indicators measuring the achievement of each objective.

Improvements in reporting by Indigenous status has allowed for detailed reporting for Indigenous children enrolled and attending preschool and elapsed times for aged care services to Indigenous people.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services report, 2010-11: OATSIH services reporting - key results.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

This report presents the main findings from the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH) Services Reporting data collection. Data were collected by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) from primary health-care services, substance use services and Bringing Them Home and Link Up counselling services that received funding through OATSIH in 2010-11. The health services included those provided through Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community controlled health organisations.

The information covered the number of clients seen, episodes of care and client contacts. This information helps to inform Indigenous health policy, and program development and implementation. Primary health care services provided 2.5 million episodes of care to about 428,000 Indigenous clients; substance use services provided treatment and assistance to about 28,600 clients and Bringing Them Home and Link Up counselling services were accessed by about 11,800 clients.

Five keys areas which required further analysis were identified:

* creating positive environments for smoking cessation
* improving our understanding of motivations for smoking and not smoking
* improving our knowledge of best practice interventions
* empowering and supporting the health workforce
* best use of resources to support tobacco control

The report highlighted the need to carry these key ideas forward, for example, in terms of the Federal Government's National Indigenous Tobacco Iniatitive.
