Yarning about Quitting is a blended learning package for health professionals to build their capacity in offering culturally appropriate smoking cessation support to pregnant Aboriginal women and mothers. It is relevant for health professionals working with Aboriginal women, women having Aboriginal babies, and Aboriginal families.

The package offers evidence-based information for treatment of smoking in pregnancy. It also has a strong focus on communication skills, such as how to:

  • open a conversation about smoking and quitting
  • revisit the conversation over time (at other visits)
  • offer support and advice to help a woman make/sustain quit attempts.
