Tackling Indigenous Smoking: A Randomised Controlled Study of Healthy Intervention "SNAP" in Northern Territory Prisons

 

Overview

This project will monitor the appropriate level of health-related interventions after prison release in the Northern Territory (NT) with a specific focus on smoking uptake and cessation. Released participants will be followed up to examine relapse to smoking at day 1, 7, 30 and 90 post-release. The project re-visits the underlying concepts of the Smoking, Nutrition, Alcohol and Physical Activity (SNAP) Into Life Project, which is now completed. 

The aims of the project are to:

All eligible prisoners nearing release will be invited to participate in the project and those who consent will be randomised to receive the health intervention SNAP, or to be a part of the usual care control group.
