Addressing health inequity for tane Maori

Addressing health inequity for tane Maori

This workshop will address the inequalities and inequity through engagement initiatives used in a Maori men’s health and wellbeing programme based in Rotorua.

A great opportunity for networking and learning among GPs, nurse practitioners and nurses working in primary care, this workshop is focussed on Maori men helping Maori men with high health and social needs to realise their full potential and to improve four aspects of health. Presenters from the Tane Takitu Ake programme will cover Whanau (family health), tinana (physical health), hinengaro (mental health) and wairua (spiritual health) so that they realise and optimise their role in their whanau and the community. Presenters will include the following:

  • Timothy Ryan - long-term conditions nurse
  • Kevin Pahina - supervisor of the Tane Takitu Ake programme
  • Richard Rautjoki - facilitator of the Tane Takitu Ake programme
  • Dr Aaron Randell - PhD in Sport Science

The “Addressing health inequity for tane Maori” activity has been endorsed by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) and has been approved for up to 6 CME credits, for the General Practice Educational Programme (GPEP) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) purposes.
