Whetū i te Rangi Symposium

The Whetū i te Rangi Symposium will highlight the work and research occurring in palliative care with Māori across Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Whetū i te Rangi will foster discussion and will explore how hospice and palliative care can contribute to a well-supported transition towards the end of life for Māori.

This one-day symposium will promote exchange between whānau, practitioners, researchers and those working in the community about the unique nature of working in this growing specialist area.

We especially look forward to exploring the Pae Herenga resources and research findings from the Te Arai Palliative Care Research Group.

Mary Potter Hospice is grateful for the support of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga to host this symposium and to offer symposium scholarships. More details on scholarships to come.
