Evaluation 2022/23 – 2025/26

A national evaluation of the TIS program will take place. The evaluation of the TIS program for the next phase of the program will be split into a two-part process. The Cultural and Indigenous Research Centre Australia (CIRCA) will conduct part A of the TIS evaluation (implementation and process evaluation). The Australian National University (ANU) will conduct part B (impact evaluation).

The TIS Program Logic 2023-26 is an overview of what the TIS program is trying to achieve over the next implementation period. It has been developed by CIRCA for Part A of the TIS evaluation. It maps out the inputs, activities, and outputs, as well as the desired short-, medium-, and long-term outcomes for the program. Short-term outcomes are focused on changes in people’s understanding, medium-term outcomes are focused on changes in people’s intentions or motivations, and long-term outcomes are about behavioural changes. The diagram includes small icons so you can easily see which stakeholders the different outcomes refer to.

Evaluation 2018/19 – 2021/22

The implementation and process evaluation of the TIS program from 2018/19 – 2021/22 was conducted by CIRCA. The evaluation looked at:

  • program appropriateness, evidence base and national supports;
  • whether it’s on target to achieve its short and medium term goals;
  • program enablers and barriers.

You can read CIRCA’s Tackling Indigenous Smoking Program final evaluation report (2018/19 – 2021/22) here.

The report shows that the program is implementing evidence-based approaches to promote population health as intended, and is achieving successful outcomes.
