For further information see School of Health Sciences


This course examines the Maori health knowledge/action interface at a number of levels: 1) knowledge of intervention effectiveness through evaluation/monitoring of Maori health outcomes; 2) tools and methods used by services, policy-makers and researchers to collect and analyse Maori health data; and 3) knowledge, beliefs and experiences as they inform the health behaviour of Maori consumers. Addressing questions of 'how do we know what works for Maori health?' and 'what is Maori (health) knowledge?' will connect interventions/approaches to Treaty of Waitangi obligations, and Maori philosophy to health decision-making and investment.
