Te Ara Hā Asthma Self-Management Programme

Piupiu12016 - 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.
