Te Whare Tapa Whā

We have just published a brand-new resource that will help build understanding and awareness around the Māori health model known as Te Whare Tapa Whā.


The resource is a series of video interviews (linked below) with Sir Mason Durie that explore the four pillars of Te Whare Tapa Whā and how it can help whānau and the health workforce to re-energise and restore their wellbeing. The intention is to provide coherent and easy-to-access information about the model that can be used by Te Whatu Ora and the wider Aotearoa New Zealand health workforce. 

Please feel free to watch and share these video interviews with your networks.
