Kaupapa Māori Evaluation: Transforming Health Literacy
Ms Carlson's research set out to evaluate the effectiveness of a cardiovascular disease medicines health literacy intervention. Kaupapa Māori evaluation was the guiding approach for gaining insights about the intervention from patients/whānau and Ngāti Porou Hauora health practitioners directly involved in the intervention as well as the wider Ngāti Porou community. Her research set to broaden the insights into health literacy approaches through Māori and international Indigenous key informant interviews, synthesising their insights with analyses of the evaluation data. In addition, Ms Carlson's research sought to ground its understandings of health literacy interventions and approaches with Indigenous communities in other colonial contexts by collaboratively designing and testing an evaluation framework. As well as the focus on health literacy as a construct, her research broadened understandings around the praxis of kaupapa Māori evaluation in the context of an iwi‐centred approach.
