Smoking cessation survey for community service organisation staff
Curtin University and Cancer Council WA are conducting a national survey of staff working in community service organisations. This project aims to inform strategies that provide both clients and staff in the sector with support to live a smoke-free life.
To identify the most appropriate ways to do this, we would like your opinion as a community service organisation staff member or manager.
Respondents will go into the draw to win one of ten $200 gift vouchers.
Participation in this research study is voluntary and all responses will be anonymous and confidential.
Tobacco smoking rates are up to 6 times higher among financially and socially disadvantaged population groups. Despite many people wanting to quit, disadvantaged people can face many barriers to cutting down and quitting and have less access to support to assist them to reach their goals.
This research project will assist in the development of a program to improve people’s access to support to cut down and quit.
