He Whakaturanga mo te Hauora Tamariki: A picture of child health
Mr Waldon researched the applicability of a child health questionnaire for Maori-speaking children. It involved translation of an international instrument into Maori. Throughout the research children played a central role as key experts, focus group participants, and translators. The thesis argues that the involvement of participants in research, designed to investigate their health, is critical. It also concludes that self administered questionnaires can be valuable for understanding the health of Maori speaking children.
