Abstract: While smoking rates among Australians in general have declined over the past two decades, rates for Aboriginal Australians have remained high and continue to contribute to the overall poor health of Aboriginal people. Aboriginal health workers are proposed as one way to help reduce smoking rates for Aboriginal people however there is a need for specifically developed courses to train health workers to deliver smoking interventions.
