Indigenous training for Queensland health workers to tackle smoking and disease

Date posted: 9 August 2017

Queensland healthcare workers will undergo training to help them better address the rate of smoking and disease among their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.

Health Minister, Cameron Dick, said the statewide training program would guide health professionals in giving culturally-appropriate lifestyle advice to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients.

'It will enable them to deliver appropriate smoking cessation, nutrition and physical activity brief interventions to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients,' Mr Dick said.

Menzies School of Health Research Director Professor Alan Cass said the program aimed to reduce the rate of smoking and disease among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders.
