From General Practitioner to researcher with impact

Identifying cigarette smoking as a burning issue for many Indigenous Australians, Dr Gillian Gould is working to fast track people’s efforts to quit.

Dr Gillian Gould

A successful career as a GP led Dr Gillian Gould to academia to focus on qualitative and quantitative research that can make a real difference in the health of our nation.

Paying close attention to the health implications of smoking, Gillian honed her research to improve the risks from tobacco smoking for Indigenous women of child-bearing age.

Gillian’s studies with expectant Indigenous mothers focus on what regular tobacco use means for nurturing healthy babies inside the womb and also deals with preventing potential long-term health implications for Indigenous children if their mothers smoke.

“A lot of the acute and chronic problems that we know affect Indigenous Australians, such as heart disease and ‘glue ear,’ can be traced back to smoking,” Gillian elaborates.

“So if Aboriginal women (47% of whom smoke while pregnant compared to just 13% in the general population) can stop even just for those nine months, it will give their kids the best chance at life.”

Using qualitative and quantitative methodologies aligned to Indigenous health, Gillian’s research is translation and is being implemented by multiple health professionals and healthcare groups. “My research aims to make a real difference,” Gillian affirms.

Gillian started out as a GP before being one of the foundation academics of a University of New South Wales (UNSW) rural clinical school in Coffs Harbour. With a background in community healthcare, Gillian was approached by a local Aboriginal Medical Service in the mid-2000s to help co-develop targeted and culturally-appropriate quit groups in the area.

This research aimed to fill a knowledge gap in the way that messages are delivered and received with the goal of developing best practice for quit-smoking messages.

Gillian also received government funding for an Indigenous tobacco control initiative called ‘No Smokes North Coast’. “This included an arts-based strategy for youths in school, as well as a DVD, which has since been widely distributed by several smoking quit line services in the country,” Gillian adds.

“These early years set me on a trajectory of creating and evaluating smoking cessation programs.”

Seen and heard

Bolstering her research career with further study, Gillian undertook a PhD at James Cook University in 2011. An exploratory look at tobacco use within Indigenous Australia, the ambitious three-year probe sought to validate and, when necessary, critique, the tone and pitch of messages being sent to Indigenous peoples about quitting smoking.

“Despite high prevalence, little is known about how Indigenous peoples assess their smoking risks,” she comments.

“My findings suggest that if fear appeals are used, they should also be accompanied by self-efficacy messages of support.”

“Understanding the differences observed in risk assessment and motivation to quit smoking will help researchers to develop tailored tobacco control and cessation interventions.”

Coupled with a national survey examining how different organisations create these messages, Gillian’s thesis made a number of other recommendations as well.

“Aboriginal organisations were doing the cultural aspects really well and non-Aboriginal organisations had strong theoretical foundations and a higher level of rigor,” she notes.

“My argument was that by working together, the two could combine their skills and complement each other.”

Acronyms and acumen

Gillian joined the University of Newcastle in January 2015, signing on to become a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Early Career Research Fellow within its School of Medicine and Public Health. She has since launched a handful of successful projects, most recently co-developing a robust ‘ICAN QUIT in Pregnancy’ intervention with the Biripi community in Taree and Tobwabba community in Forster.

“The ‘ICAN’ stands for Indigenous Counselling and Nicotine,” she explains.

“Together, we’ve produced a suite of resources to help train healthcare professionals in Aboriginal Medical Services.”

“Our view is that until they are equipped with the knowledge and skills to offer evidence-based treatment, we can’t expect people to stop their tobacco use.”

Bringing together Gillian’s expertise and the unique experiences of Indigenous Australians dwelling on the mid north coast, the innovative initiative is also informed by a country-wide survey of 380 GP's and obstetricians.

“Participants were found to be good at asking if patients smoke, but fell short of providing assistance, such as counselling and nicotine replacement therapy,” she states.

“Many lacked optimism as well.”

“So we now know where the gaps are, we are working on addressing them.”

Branching out

Gillian’s plans to extend her research to also help Indigenous women overseas to stop smoking. The passionate collaborator is teaming up with researchers at the Mayo Clinic in the United States, encouraging Alaska Native women to quit using tobacco, and joining forces with medical experts in New Zealand to support the cessation efforts of Maori women as well.

“There are some commonalities between these seemingly disparate groups,” Gillian adds.

“Their experiences of colonisation and dispossession have caused shared problems with smoking.”

Closer to home, the British native is working with South Australian academics to train healthcare professionals in Aboriginal Medical Services to stop tobacco use across all ages and genders. Gillian is collaborating with UON researchers Professor Joerg Mattes and Conjoint Associate Professor Adrian Dunlop on a project exploring smoking cessation in pregnancy not specific to Indigenous peoples too.

“My work is spreading into the general population,” she acknowledges. “It’s really quite exciting.”

Biography

Career

Gould’s primary research focus is strategies to improve the risks from tobacco smoking for Indigenous Australians.  Gould is an NHMRC Early Career Research Fellow (Australian Public Health and Health Services) at University of Newcastle since January 2015. The focus of the fellowship is improving cessation strategies for pregnant Indigenous smokers. Gould completed her PhD Public Health December 2014, topic ‘Making Salient Messages for Indigenous Tobacco Control’. She currently holds two RACGP grants including the Chris Silagy Research Scholarship. Gould is a GP and a Tobacco Treatment Specialist with nearly a decade of academic experience at University of New South Wales Faculty of Medicine 2002-2011 as senior lecturer, Head of Campus of Rural Clinical School Coffs Harbour (2 yrs) and senior research fellow (2 yrs). She qualified with an MBChB (University of Leeds UK 1976) and MA (Arts Therapy 2003), a Grad Dip Creative and Experiential Arts Therapy (1999) and a Dip Drama (1980). Gould is also an adjunct senior lecturer at Southern Cross University. Gould's GP experience is over 30years in UK, NZ and Australia (vocationally registered with Health Insurance Commission and on specialist and generalist registers Medical Board of Australia) including medical officer Refugee Health at Coffs Harbour Health Campus.

Translational research

Gould’s research includes qualitative and quantitative methodologies aligned to Indigenous health, with a focus on pregnant Aboriginal smokers, and male and female Aboriginal smokers of reproductive age. Gould was senior research fellow at UNSW 2009-11 while CIA on ‘No Smokes North Coast’ Indigenous Tobacco Control Initiative. This comprehensive tobacco control project, for the North Coast NSW, targeted youth, pregnant smokers and dependent smokers with chronic disease. Gould ran and evaluated local quit groups for the Mid North Coast Division of General Practice for 10 years. As CIA on smaller projects, she collaboratively developed the culturally targeted ‘Give Up The Smokes’ programs for Aboriginal smokers on the mid North Coast NSW, designed culturally appropriate training materials and manuals for the smoking cessation strategies, and trained over 50 health professionals and Aboriginal Health Workers from 2009-13.  Her research has been used in the Quitskills training manuals by Cancer Council South Australia for smoking cessation interventions with pregnant Indigenous smokers. Gould’s translational research in this area was featured as a success story in the PHCRED Snapshot 2014, and was acknowledged by personal communication from the Minister of Health in 2014. The award-winning ‘Blow Away The Smokes DVD’ is distributed by several state-based Quitlines to Indigenous callers, and used by numerous Tackling Indigenous Smoking teams nationally.

Collaborations

Gould is building networks with national and international teams in tobacco research, including researchers at University College London, where she did a placement with PhD advisor Dr Andy McEwen. She is collaborating with Indigenous researchers in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA. Collaborative funding applications include researchers at the Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research SA and the National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre NSW, James Cook University QLD, University of Western Sydney, and University of Newcastle.

© 2015, BMJ. All rights reserved.Objectives: To assess the predictors of intentions to quit smoking in a community sample of Aboriginal smokers of reproductive age, in whom smoking prevalence is slow to decline. Design, setting and participants: A cross-sectional survey involved 121 Aboriginal smokers, aged 18-45 years from January to May 2014, interviewed at community events on the Mid-North Coast NSW. Qualitative and quantitative data were collected on smoking and quitting attitudes, behaviours and home smoking rules. Perceived efficacy for quitting, and perceived threat from smoking, were uniquely assessed with a validated Risk Behaviour Diagnosis (RBD) Scale. Main outcome measures: Logistic regression explored the impact of perceived efficacy, perceived threat and consulting previously with a doctor or health professional (HP) on self-reported intentions to quit smoking, controlling for potential confounders, that is, protection responses and fear control responses, home smoking rules, gender and age. Participants' comments regarding smoking and quitting were investigated via inductive analysis, with the assistance of Aboriginal researchers. Results: Two-thirds of smokers intended to quit within 3 months. Perceived efficacy (OR=4.8; 95% CI 1.78 to 12.93) and consulting previously with a doctor/HP about quitting (OR=3.82; 95% CI 1.43 to 10.2) were significant predictors of intentions to quit. 'Smoking is not doing harm right now' was inversely associated with quit intentions (OR=0.25; 95% CI 0.08 to 0.8). Among those who reported making a quit attempt, after consulting with a doctor/HP, 40% (22/60) rated the professional support received as low (0-2/10). Qualitative themes were: the negatives of smoking (ie, disgust, regret, dependence and stigma), health effects and awareness, quitting, denial, 'smoking helps me cope' and social aspects of smoking. Conclusions: Perceived efficacy and consulting with a doctor/HP about quitting may be important predictors of intentions to quit smoking in Aboriginal smokers of reproductive age. Professional support was generally perceived to be low; thus, it could be improved for these Aboriginal smokers. Aboriginal participants expressed strong sentiments about smoking and quitting.

Background: Smoking is the most important preventable cause of adverse outcomes in pregnancy. However, most smokers who become pregnant continue to smoke and most of those who quit relapse after delivery. Objective: This article explores the relationship between smoking and pregnancy, and reviews the evidence for best practice intervention by general practitioners. Discussion: Continuing to smoke during pregnancy is strongly associated with socioeconomic disadvantage, mental illness and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations. Quitting is more difficult for these groups and interventions assist only sixin every 100 pregnant smokers to quit. Behavioural counselling is the first-line treatment. Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) can be offered if the smoker is unable to quit without it, although its efficacy is uncertain. Adequate doses of nicotine and good adherance may be required for the best results. The use of NRT in pregnancy is likely to be less harmful than continuing to smoke. Women should be encouraged to quit smoking before becoming pregnant.

Tobacco smoking perpetuates the disadvantages experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia. Tobacco smoking is a risk factor for poor maternal and infant outcomes in pregnancy. Over half of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women smoke during pregnancy and few successfully quit. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women face many intrinsic barriers to quitting such as low socioeconomic disadvantage and patterns of use in family networks. There are also several extrinsic hurdles surrounding current practice guidelines and policy that may limit success in reducing smoking rates among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women during pregnancy: the use of the Stages of Change (SOC) model; delay in the use of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT); and the absence of subsidised intermittent NRT. A more proactive approach towards smoking cessation for pregnant Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women may be necessary, including moving away from the SOC model approach and subsidised provision of intermittent NRT. Comprehensive programs that take into account the family network and wider social context are also recommended. © Australian Academic Press 2011.

Training health professionals in tobacco cessation and evidence translation for Aboriginal Australians$832,723

AIMS: The overall aims of this proposal are to 1) achieve sustainable reductions in tobacco use among Aboriginal communities, 2) increase offers of smoking cessation assistance by health professionals (HPs), 3) reduce health care expenditure subsequent to reductions in tobacco-related morbidity 4) build community capacity by training HPs in smoking cessation techniques and 5) aid evidence translation of existing initiatives for other health and social priorities. Through a multi-site, cluster randomised controlled trial incorporating existing culturally-tailored and community-driven health initiatives, combined with group training for motivational interviewing (MI) techniques we envisage sustainable long-term outcomes in our intervention arm compared to the delayed intervention (DI) control. We have successfully pioneered these practices into the clinical inpatient settings and built this application on the foundation of in depth pilot investigations over the past seven years with widespread community input and participation. With this proposal we aim to show that a simple, low-intensity program can produce sustainable health benefits among a population over represented in morbidity and premature mortality.

Counselling and Nicotine (CAN) QUIT in Pregnancy Rewards Plus$199,136

Pregnant tobacco smokers with comorbid substance use problems are a highly vulnerable and priority population. Aboriginal women are over-represented in this group. To date, smoking cessation rates are negligible in this target population (close to zero), with few existing effective interventions to support this target group to quit smoking. This is a pilot, pre-post study, to trial the acceptability and feasibility of an evidence-based smoking cessation intervention for pregnant women who smoke tobacco with other substance use problems. The intervention uses a combination of counselling, nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) from a trained ‘tobacco treatment specialist’, and contingent incentives (monetary rewards) dependent on validated smoking reduction and abstinence.

Indigenous Counselling and Nicotine (ICAN) QUIT in Pregnancy pilot study in Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS)$30,000

AIMS: 1) assessing the feasibility and acceptability of webinar training for GPs and health professionals at ACCHS to improve approaches to smoking cessation care for pregnant smokers in their care, and Aim 2) assessing changes in provider behaviour for smoking cessation care in pregnancy. In this study, smoking cessation care is defined as the following 10 activities: asked about smoking, brief advice given, made a quit plan, offered medication, client education, discussed home/family influences, follow-up/referral, resources given, explored client perspectives, client satisfaction. The study will provide important pilot data for a planned cluster randomised controlled trial (RCT). The study has the potential to provide new knowledge, trial innovative approaches, and improve the translation of evidence-based approaches for Indigenous pregnant smokers.

Risk behaviour and risk acceptance of smoking in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders of child bearing age – phase 2 community sample$7,169

This project aimed to determine how Indigenous smokers of childbearing age assess risks about tobacco smoking and how these assessments contribute to their intentions to quit smoking. We further aimed to determine what other factors are associated with intentions to quit and seek help for quitting. As smoking is the most significant risk to the health of Aboriginal people in Australia, and smoking is still embedded in cultural norms in Indigenous communities, understanding how risk assessments are made and what motivates people to quit smoking are fundamental to promoting healthy behaviour changes. The study was a cross-sectional quantitative survey, which was validated for use in the Indigenous target population. The survey instrument used existing risk behaviour scales to determine whether prevailing attitudes in Indigenous smokers to anti-tobacco messages contributed towards message acceptance or resistance. The information gained was of practical use to the development of culturally targeted interventions and persuasive health promotion messages.
