He Kokonga Whare (HKW): Māori Intergenerational Trauma and Healing Programme
2011 - 2016 | Health Research Council of New Zealand
Te Atawhai o Te Ao has taken on a major research programme called He Kokonga Whare: Māori Intergenerational Trauma and Healing. This programme will run from October 2011 to September 2016.
We are only the second Māori led programme awarded by the Health Research Council (HRC) in 20 years, and we have made history as the first HRC programme to be awarded to a community-based host.
Te Ara Hā Asthma Self-Management Programme
2016 - 2018 | In association with Dr. Tristram Ingham and Bernadette Jones of University of Otago
Te Ara Hā programme looks to generate new knowledge through a culturally-appropriate asthma support programme for tamariki and their whānau, whilst at the same time building health literacy, incorporating tikanga and mātauranga Māori, and empowering tamariki and their whānau to be in control of asthma management. The research will provide evidence of the effectiveness of a health literacy-based intervention, with potential to inform reconfiguration of service delivery/policy in both primary and secondary care.
Researchers: Dr Cherryl Smith and Susie Wakefield.
