Indigenous tobacco control in Australia: everybody’s business, National Indigenous Tobacco Control Research Roundtable report.
Brisbane: Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Tobacco Control (CEITC)

This publication reports on the roundtable discussions of representatives from community-controlled organisations, research institutes, state, territory and federal governments and non-government agencies, pertaining to the gaps and priorities for Indigenous tobacco control research.

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.
