Study sites wanted for Indigenous Smoking Cessation Trial

  • 3 May

    The SISTAQUIT Study (https://www.newcastle.edu.au/research-and-innovation/centre/cbmhr/research/sistaquit)aims to improve the provision of timely, evidence-based smoking cessation care to pregnant Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who smoke and who attend an Aboriginal Medical and Health Service for their ante-natal care. The study involves a randomized controlled trial testing the SISTAQUIT intervention against ‘usual care’ (all sites receive SISTAQUIT either now or later).


    We will to do this through on-site face to face interactive webinar training, free trial resources, free oral NRT for all study sites and financial reimbursement to both study sites and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who consent to participate in the study.


    The SISTAQUIT Team are aiming to recruit 30 study sites nationally and are very excited to have already recruited 22 ACCHOs from NSW, Queensland, NT, WA and SA.


    We would love to hear from any ACCHOs, local health districts, and GP practices who would be interested in becoming a study site or those who would like more information on the study. We are opening recruitment to any eligible service nationwide in all states and territories.


    If your service would like to be a part of this vital trial to help us understand how to provide the best chance of quitting during pregnancy then please call or email:
