Aboriginal community research initiative for Apunipima TIS program

Date posted: 5 September 2017

Apunipima staff and community members have been participating in Aboriginal Community Researcher training, facilitated by Sharon Forrester, a Senior Aboriginal Researcher from the Tackling Indigenous Smoking National Best Practice Unit, Ninti One.

The training prepares participants to conduct surveys and focus groups in communities and to collect and analyse data.
New community Aboriginal Community Researchers (ACR) include: Cecily Rokeby (Coen), Chantal Deakin (Pormpuraaw) and Priscilla Gibson (HopeVale).

The researchers will hold community focus groups in Coen, Pormpuraaw, Napranum, Mossman Gorge, Hopevale and Wujal Wujal to help evaluate Apunipima’s Don’t Make Smokes Your Story campaign.

The groups will assess the campaign’s appropriateness and changes in awareness, attitude, intentions and behaviours as a result of being exposed to the campaign.

Dates for upcoming focus groups are:
