Workplace Tobacco Management Project Research Findings (Evaluation) Report by Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drug Association ACT

Quantitative and qualitative responses were requested to first determine if there was more talk among staff about the policy process and then to identify what the conversations were about.

This is most likely due to the period between follow-up 1 and follow-up 2 being the time of most significant activity concerning policy development, implementation and finalization as identified in figure 5.
