Intra-Professional Pharmacy engagement for Whānau Ora

Published June 29 2015

Best of luck to Ngā Kaitiaki o Te Puna Rongoā o Aotearoa The Māori Pharmacists’ Association who have been nominated for Professional Service of the Year Award 2015 for their Intra-Professional engagement for Whānau Ora empowering whānau through marae based wānanga, building whānau health literacy in a marae-based setting with a focus on gout, in particular preventing gout and the importance of ongoing self-management hence collectively improving the quality of care for whānau in the community.

The overwhelming success of this project has led to extension of planning to deliver similar projects in different areas and to plan similar projects in the same area with the focus on different health conditions.
