Mary Potter Hospice has broadened the reach of participants for our Te Tiriti o Waitangi (the Treaty of Waitangi) study day to include our partners across the health sector and the community. The purpose is to explore and understand the reasons for the signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi in 1840, its relevance in the 21st century and how it can be practically applied in today’s health environment, and to widen people’s exposure to a Māori environment on the marae.

We will look at the historical context of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the impact that colonisation and cultural alienation has had on Māori health outcomes since 1840. This will include discussions on health equity, institutional racism and unconscious bias within the health sector – and what we can do as health professional and health service providers, to address the inequities for Māori from a Treaty partnership perspective.

This training session will take place within a marae setting.
