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 explore how hospice and palliative care services can contribute to better care for Māori towards the end of life, and in bereavement.

It will promote productive exchange between kaumatua, kaimahi, researchers, policy makers, clinicians and health professionals about the unique nature of working in this specialist area through:

  • Whanaungatanga (form relationships for collaboration and service delivery)
  • Mahi tahi (opportunity to work together on current sector needs)
  • Ako (knowledge sharing).

The Symposium will highlight work and research occurring in Palliative Care with Māori across Aotearoa.  It will promote the importance and increase awareness of care with this growing 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.
