Tackling Indigenous Smoking program launched in Kimberley

Date posted: 24 June 2016

The Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services' (KAMS) Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) program was launched this month in Broome, Western Australia (WA) to coincide with World No Tobacco Day.

The 13 person team across Aboriginal medical services in Broome, Derby, Halls Creek and Fitzroy Crossing, will provide support to Aboriginal people to become smoke-free through individual and family-based case management, education programs and other training initiatives.

Emma Carlin, Manager of KAMS TIS, said the new program offered people a multi-pronged approach to receiving assistance in an appropriate way that was responsive to Indigenous people's needs. 'KAMS and member services are deeply committed to finding innovative and effective ways to reduce smoking,' Ms Carlin said.
