Project Title: Best Health for Maori: Te Hoe Nuku Roa - housing, hazards and health

Home hazards are a major cause of injury for Maori. This study will capitalise on an existing cohort of Maori houses which are participants in the Best Outcomes for Maori : Te Hoe Nuku Roa longitudinal study. Audits of 350 Maori houses (Manawatu, Wellington, Nelson) will be undertaken using the Health Housing Index developed by members of this research team. Trained Maori auditors from building science backgrounds will undertake the audits. All houses will received remediation: half of the houses will be randomly assigned to an intervention group where remediation of selected hazards will be undertaken by professional builders with the balance of the houses remediated at the end of the randomised control trial. Post-intervention audits will be carried out after the conclusion of this intervention study. We will also assess emergency preparedness for earthquakes determining structural and behavioural risks for Maori. A Maori doctoral student will complete her training.

Project Title: Culturally appropriate end of life care for Maori

Within New Zealand, the need has been identified for the delivery of innovative, coordinated, efficient and more effective palliative care for all population groups, and specifically for Maori. The Liverpool Care Pathway for the Dying Patient (LCP), an internationally adopted, multi-setting, evidence-based, integrated care tool for planning, decision-making, and documenting health care, is now widely used throughout New Zealand. During its introduction here, 'cultural goals' of care were added to localise the tool within this cultural context. This tri-phase, mixed method, three-year study aims to investigate those cultural goals, examining - specifically in relation to Maori - how those goals were developed, and what their effects on care provision have been. Based on those findings, work will be undertaken with Maori communities to transform the New Zealand version of the LCP into a tool to best facilitate culturally appropriate end-of-life care for Maori.
