Symposium 2021 – Whetū i te Rangi

A symposium for enhancing care towards the end of life for Māori
He huihuinga tēnei ki te whakakaha i ngā manaakitanga o te whānau i runga i te haerenga ki te mate

Whetū i te Rangi will identify ways to improve access, choice and equity for tangata Māori towards the end of life and in bereavement.

We will highlight current work and research occurring in palliative care with Māori across Aotearoa. We will explore new resources and tools available to both the sector and whānau. You will hear from rangatahi, kaumātua, whānau, clinicians, researchers and specialists.

If you have a focus on end of life issues, Māori wellbeing and Māori health, save the date and please join us.

Registrations are now open. Nau mai, haere mai.
