A Woman Centred Approach to Aboriginal Women's Smoking

 

Overview

This Tackling Indigenous Smoking research project aims to investigate A Woman Centred Approach to Aboriginal Women's Smoking.

The project will undertake research with Aboriginal women to better understand the role smoking plays in their lives. Research will be conducted in the following Western Australia (WA) communities:

The researchers aim to investigate smoking cessation in a holistic way, focusing on the positive reasons a woman might choose to quit smoking, such as better health, increased control and a sense of empowerment.

This project outcomes may be used to refine and refocus existing quitting smoking programs by identifying meaningful and culturally appropriate activities, messages, strategies and support services.
