Kaupapa Hauora Maori: Nga Whakaaro Whakahirahira o Nga Kaumatua
Mrs Wenn’s research focused on the views of kaumatua - older Maori - in defining the concept of ‘Kaupapa Hauora Maori’ : optimal health and wellbeing for Maori. Using a qualitative methodology with in-depth interviewing with kaumatua from Taranaki and the Wairarapa, and using respondents to refine her analysis, Mrs Wenn has produced a framework which can be used in the design and quality assessment of health services. This framework has been applied in the critical analysis of the popular models of Maori health in order to gauge the concordance of these models with the views of conservative, older Maori. This research will inform the quality assessment and quality improvement processes for health providers as they address the priority of Maori health.
