Māori Health Advancement Team

The Division of Health Sciences Māori Health Advancement Online Workshops are being held across the months of September, October and November 2020.

The Division of Health Sciences is launching online Māori Health Advancement workshops to support all researchers to further develop their research related skills, assist in their engagement techniques with Māori and support their grant writing.

A series of five 2-hour workshops will be offered over 8 weeks in sequential order.

As the workshops are tailor-made to work towards writing clear grant applications, we are offering a number of dates and times to fit busy schedules. Maximum numbers for each session will be 30. These will be the first of many offerings in the Māori Health Advancement area.

These workshops will be led by the Division’s Māori Health Advancement Officer, Anna Latu (Ngāi Tahu). Anna is based at Dunedin Campus where she specialises in academic development.

Please note that registrations made less than 48 hours before a session might not be approved on time.

Workshop One – Relationships and the Treaty

This 2-hour workshop runs between Monday 7 September and Friday 9 October. When you register for this workshop you will be given a range of dates and times to pick from.

Workshop overview

What does our past have to do with creating research relationships with Māori? How do I include the Treaty of Waitangi in my research? In this workshop, we take a look at the impact colonisation has had on Aotearoa, past and present, with a focus on solutions to ensure we create a better future for Māori.

Participants will have the opportunity to explore and discuss:

  • The process of colonisation in Aotearoa
  • The impact colonisation has had on Māori
  • The role the TOW plays in Māori research
  • How to create Māori responsive research relationships

Workshop One – Relationships and the Treaty – No more sessions available for 2020

Workshop Two – Research Teams

This 2-hour workshop runs between Tuesday 15 September and Thursday 15 October. When you register for this workshop you will be given a range of dates and times to pick from.

Workshop overview

He waka eke noa. We are all in this together.

This whakataukī has several meanings, one of which is “a waka we are all in together” – we rise together, fall together, work together, keep going together. Consultation is a vital step in the development of a research project that involves Māori - either as participants or when the topic is of particular relevance to Māori health. If we are all not in the waka and we are not clear together on our destination, then we need to change things up. This may look like the development of research partnerships, the identification of the most useful research design methods, the resolution of contentious issues, and the maximisation of the potential health outcomes.

Goals of the workshop

In this workshop researchers will look at developing their existing workforce, whilst establishing meaningful relationships with Māori. To be able to do this well, they will explore Te Ara Tika Guidelines.

This series of Māori Health Health workshops are on offer over 8 weeks in sequential order. Please ensure you will have attended Workshop One: Relationships and the Treaty before attending this workshop.

Workshop Two – Research Teams – No more sessions available for 2020

Workshop Three – Appropriate Research Practices

This 2-hour workshop runs between Monday 28 September and Friday 23 October. When you register for this workshop you will be given a range of dates and times to pick from.

Workshop overview

What are the fundamental differences between Kaupapa Māori research and Māori Centred Research? How do we approach Māori health research? In this workshop, we aim to set a foundation for understanding the Māori worldview and our need as researchers to adhere to culturally appropriate practices and principles.

In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to explore and discuss:

  • The characteristics of Māori Research
  • Ethical dimensions of Tikanga Māori
  • The Pōwhiri Process
  • Māori engagement

This series of Māori Health Health workshops are on offer over 8 weeks in sequential order. Please ensure you will have attended Workshop One: Relationships and the Treaty, and Workshop Two: Research Teams, before attending this workshop.

Workshop Three – Appropriate Research Practices  – No more sessions available for 2020

Workshop Four – Māori Health Need and Inequity

Please note for Workshop Four, the 7 October option is now full.

This 2-hour workshop runs between Monday 6 October and Friday 29 October. When you register for this workshop you will be given a range of dates and times to pick from.

Workshop overview

Māori are the tangata whenua of New Zealand. As a Treaty partner and a priority population requiring appropriate health intervention, Māori involvement in health research is critical. Māori present disproportionately negatively in the majority of health and well-being statistics that have been gathered nationally. What are the key areas of inequity in your health area and what are the solutions for improvement? In this workshop, we aim to provide clarity and discuss how policy, interventions and consultation shape quality of research outcomes.

Goals of the workshop

In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to explore Māori Health documents and discuss what authority we have to work with Māori? The workshop will also highlight already existing research and initiatives examples that have made a difference for Māori. Finally the workshop will explore Māori Models of Health, including guidelines to help create Māori responsive research.

This series of Māori Health Health workshops are on offer over 8 weeks in sequential order. Please ensure you will have attended workshops one, two, and three before attending this workshop.

Workshop Five – Workforce Capacity

This 2-hour workshop runs between Monday 12 October and Friday 6 November. When you register for this workshop you will be given a range of dates and times to pick from.

Workshop overview

This workshop pulls together all of the learning from the previous workshops and helps research teams and individuals with research expertise to consider how now to consult with Māori.

Participants will have the opportunity to explore and discuss specifically to their own research area of interest:

  • How the methodology will demonstrate and affirm best practice application of Māori research principles when working with Māori
  • Whether the research appropriately and adequately considers design issues that could strengthen Māori health advancement
  • How the proposed research demonstrates appropriate understanding and incorporation of Māori ethical considerations and processes

This series of Māori Health Health workshops are on offer over 8 weeks in sequential order. Please ensure you will have attended all four workshops before this one.
