Strategies

This partnership between COAG and BRAMS utilises specific strategies to implement the Tobacco Control Worker program. Strategies include consulting with community members and patients and identifying smokers who have acknowledged that they want to quit. The use of a Smokerlyzer helps smokers understand the extent of their dependence on nicotine and motivates them to quit, with assistance provided through various resources obtained from the clinic, Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services and the Cancer Council.
