This publication reports on the roundtable discussions of The National Indigenous Tobacco Control Research where sixty-six representatives from community-controlled organisations, research institutions, state, territory and federal governments, and non-government organisations discussed gaps and priorities in the research agenda in Indigenous tobacco control. 

Five keys areas which required further analysis were identified:

• creating positive environments for smoking cessation
• improving our understanding of motivations for smoking and not smoking
• improving our knowledge of best practice interventions
• empowering and supporting the health workforce
• best use of resources to support tobacco control

The report highlighted the need to carry these key ideas forward, for example, in terms of the Federal Government’s National Indigenous Tobacco Iniatitive.
