Asthma and Smoking Prevention Project
This study involves a peer-lead education program aimed at improving asthma outcomes and preventing smoking in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people. It is based on the Adolescent Asthma Action Program or Triple A Program with an added smoking prevention component.
The project aims to:
- improve asthma self-management
- reduce the uptake of tobacco smoking amongst high school students
- evaluate the implementation of the Asthma and Smoking Prevention Project (ASPP) in the new setting of the Northern Territory.
