Menzies School Of Health Research and the Queensland Government have launched the B.Strong program.
There are significant differences in health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders living in Queensland and the rest of the population. A lot of this can be addressed by changing three key lifestyle factors: smoking, nutrition and physical activity.
From 2017 to 2019, the B.strong Brief Intervention Training Program will give Queensland’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and community workforce knowledge, skills and tools to provide brief interventions to promote healthy changes to their clients. Training will be provided across Queensland in all Hospital and Health Service areas.
The B.strong Training Program will also be provided to staff working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients in non-health settings such as schools and correctional facilities. Training will be made available to all staff working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients in the government and non-government health and community sector.
B.strong is delivered by Menzies School of Health Research and proudly funded by Queensland Health.
