Well Child Tamariki Ora Workshop, Rotorua

Moana Research attended the Well Child Tamariki Ora Workshop Holiday Inn Rotorua Thursday, 19-20 November 2020.
The theme for the event was Pōhutu, the largest active geyser in the Southern hemisphere situated in the picturesque geothermal valley of Whakarewarewa. This global landmark and the surrounding area receive strength and warmth from Papatūānuku (Earth Mother). The waters and energy from below provide the region with healing and therapeutic resources, which not only bring wellness but also a connection through the geothermal network that links New Zealand, the Pacific, and the World to this special place

The team facilitated a workshop that examined reducing inequities for Pacific children, caregivers, and their families.  This included:
  1. Inequities in outcomes and systems for Pacific children, caregivers, and their families 
  2. Racism, unconscious bias, and cultural safety 
  3. Current developments in responsiveness to Pacific peoples (Pacific sector – government, DHBs, NGOs, communities – churches, etc. – case study: Covid-19) 
  4. Effective engagement with Pacific communities and families (case study: measles drop-in clinic) 
The workshop was thought-provoking & interactive, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and discussion with the workshop facilitators & colleagues. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive with a few tears shed and requests for more workshops.
