NBPU TIS: Update 24

21 October 2016

Advisory Group meet in Adelaide

Last week was a very busy week for the NBPU.  With the Jurisdictional Workshop plus also the Advisory Group meeting face-to-face too.  The Advisory Group was very well attended with robust discussions around identifying practical options to address issues faced by Grant Recipients and strategic barriers to the success of the TIS programme.  There’s some really great plans coming from the Advisory Group and it’s wonderful to have such a group supporting the TIS Programme.  

South Australian jurisdictional workshop

On Wednesday 19 October the NBPU held the South Australian jurisdictional workshop at Nunkuwarrin Yunti in Adelaide. The event was attended by approximately 45 people. There were three grant recipients from SA including Pangula Mannamurna, Nunkawarrin Yunti and Aboriginal Health Council SA which included staff from Whyalla, Ceduna, Yalata and Port Lincoln. The event was also attended by Griffith Aboriginal Medical Service in NSW who were unable to attend the NSW workshop.

Presenters provided useful insights on the overview of the TIS programme, Quitline, Quitskills, and the role of the NBPU. Workshop participants gained expert knowledge on effective strategies for data collection from Associate Professor Penney Upton. There was also an informative session for GR’s to share their stories against a specific performance indicator.

In all, another successful workshop!

Project Officer visits

Next week the NBPU project officers will be out and about visiting grant recipients.

Deb will be in Melbourne, Dandenong and Launceston. The visits are designed around meeting the teams, discussing the action plans, any challenges and what is working well. Deb is very keen to find out any training needs the teams may have which will help them. 
Elaine will be over in New South Wales in Sydney, Ballina, Dubbo and Broken Hill. Its Elaine’s first trip to these locations and she is looking forward to meeting all of the TIS teams to have chat about their Action Plans and to see how they are going.

Kerry is heading up to the Northern Territory visiting Darwin, Katherine, Barunga, Tenant Creek and Alice Springs to meet with TIS staff members to catch up with everyone and learn more about their TIS programs and activities offering support to Grant Recipients if requested , and to also see how the teams are progressing after submitting their action plans.
