Māori Liaison Advisor
I am Māori liaison advisor, providing strategic cultural advice, support and assistance to the general manager, clinical director, team managers, team leads and staff. I work closely with the chief advisor tikanga for the three Auckland region DHBs, as per the ARPHS treaty framework and manawhenua across Tamaki region.
The areas I have input into include planning and reporting, strategy, annual operating, service delivery, workforce development and training, recruitment and retention, quality, and emergency and pandemic response planning. I also chair the Tuhauora Māori staff support network group, which has a workforce development and training focus.
I have previously worked in health promotion in the kaupapa auahikore smokefree area.
