Accessing the portal
You can visit http://www.tacklingsmoking.org.au/
to access the new portal. We encourage you to get familiar with the homepage of the portal, as that will be your ‘hub’ for accessing all of the resources and information provided, including the Tackling Indigenous Smoking Resource Information Centre (TISRIC).
Once familiarised with the homepage, then we’d encourage you to have a read about what the TISRIC is, and how it can help you in your TIS work, by clicking on the ‘About the Tackling Indigenous Smoking Resource and Information Centre’ button on the homepage.
You’re now ready to check out the TISRIC by using the navigational menu on the right hand side of the portal, or the buttons at the bottom of the homepage. Different parts of the TISRIC will be relevant to you depending on what stage of your TIS activities you’re up to, however we’d generally advise starting with the ‘Planning’ section first, then onto ‘Activities that work’ (checking out some of the resources on the ‘Resources that work page as you go), and then lastly onto ‘Does your program’ work?. You might not need to be familiar with all of these sections right now, but it’s good to have a general idea of what’s in each section so you know what information to look for in the TISRIC when you start on a new phase of your activities.
Lastly, there’s also a workforce section which contains information about jobs, funding opportunities and organisations, as well as an events section which lists information about upcoming conferences, workshops and symposiums. The team from the HealthInfoNet
is very happy to share your information in the workforce section, so if you’d like to share a TIS-related job, or some information about tobacco events, then please get in touch with them.
If you’d like to, we also encourage you to join the TIS Yarning Place, located on the HealthInfoNet
. This Yarning Place has been developed specifically for you, the TIS Workers, as a place to yarn and share information. You can sign up via the link on the Workforce information page, which also contains a link to a Yarning Place guide, which will show you how to sign up, join the TIS Yarning Place, and post content.’
