As a community worker, you may have had conversations with clients from Arabic speaking or other culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds about “shisha” smoking. These conversations can be challenging without having information about the harms of shisha smoking or about services available to help people with their smoking cessation journey.
It may also sometimes feel like shisha smoking is part of your client’s culture and not your business to talk about.
However, supporting people to stay healthy is the business of all community workers.
By completing this interactive online program, you will learn more about:
- The harms of shisha smoking
- How to have conversations with clients or community members about the negative health impacts of shisha smoking
- Where to refer clients for further support to quit shisha smoking
