Our Work

Cancer Community Hui

To hear the voices of those affected by cancer we are hosting a series of Cancer Community Hui across the motu.

Māori Cancer Hui 2021

Te Aho o Te Kahu is committed to working together with Māori Leaders, Stakeholders and Communities to improve outcomes!

Come and kōrero with us to design Kaupapa Māori cancer solutions and have your say.

In 2021 the Person and Whānau-centred Care Team from Te Aho o Te Kahu will travel the country to connect with whānau Māori and listen to their experiences of cancer and cancer care. The series of 15 hui are an opportunity for Te Aho o Te Kahu and whānau Māori to work side by side to co-design better cancer outcomes for the people of Aotearoa.

Māori Cancer Hui 2019

In 2019 the Central Cancer Network (now the Central Regional Hub of Te Aho o Te Kahu) hosted a series of hui to connect with Māori and sector stakeholders in the Central Region.

The reports the Central Cancer Network produced are a valuable resource to inform the work of the Person and Whānau-centred Care Team as we move forward with our own nationwide hui to hear the voice of whānau Māori.

Deep Dive Literature Review

The Literature Review was intended as a scoping exercise to give insight into the current state of Māori Cancer in NZ across the continuum of care and enabler areas.

The Review gave context to the Deep Dive planning, design and implementation and includes excerpts from Academic articles, Cancer Data, Cancer presentations and Internal Regional/DHB documents.

Deep Dive Kaupapa Māori Evaluation

The Deep Dive Kaupapa Māori evaluation report is a reflective exercise by the Central Cancer network identifying the challenges and successes of using a Kaupapa Māori approach in the design and implementation of the seven community hui.

Deep Dive Co-Design Report

The Deep Dive Co-Design Report gives an overview of the partnership project between the CCN, HQSC and Cancer Stakeholders for the design and implementation of the 4 Deep Dive Stakeholder Hui.

Deep Dive Feedback Report

The Deep Dive Feedback Report provides the overview and analysis of the findings from the Survey and Focus Groups conducted during the Community Hui and Stakeholder Hui.

Key Māori Cancer priorities are identified with a list of recommendations across the cancer continuum of care and enabler areas.

7 Community Hui

The aim of these hui was to hear a Māori community perspective on how the sector could best work together with whānau Māori to improve cancer outcomes. You can download a review of each hui here:
