Abstract

In 1997, the NSW Department of Health approached the NSW Multicultural Health Communication Service to develop and implement a campaign to increase the use of smoke alarms by the Arabic-, Chinese- (Mandarin and Cantonese) and Vietnamese-speaking communities in NSW. This report describes the research conducted to determine community attitudes to smoke alarms and obstacles to using them.
