The new Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) Yarning Place has been officially launched. The National TIS Workers Yarning Group is a culturally-safe online community where TIS workers from across Australia can connect with their colleagues to share ideas about what’s working and what’s not, and seek advice and feedback.
The group allows TIS workers to have dynamic, real-time conversations at any time and from any location. Group members will be able to share resources, keep informed about upcoming TIS events, and share photos, videos and learnings afterwards.
The National TIS Workers Facebook Yarning Group is just the latest in an existing suite of Yarning Places – a network of different platforms designed to help TIS workers stay connected wherever they are online, these include:
