Queensland Jurisdictional Workshop - Brisbane
On Tuesday 14th June 2016, the NBPU TIS hosted the very first Jurisdictional workshop in Brisbane, Qld. The workshop was attended by over 30 people and so far, feedback has been wonderful. Participants briefly heard from QuitLine and HealthInfoNet and the support they can offer to the TIS workers, before everyone work-shopped ideas around effective strategies for TIS. They also learnt more about the Data Collection methods and tips on how to get the best out of particular methods and its associated indicator and how to measure as per each of these indicators.
