Te ORA Hui-ā-Tau & Scientific Conference 2017
Poipoia ō tātou ngākau
Care, compassion and connection
The theme for the 2017 Hui-a-Tau is: Poipoia ō tātou ngākau - Care, compassion and connection
Te ORA is an organisation that represents all Māori doctors. In the Te ORA whakapapa, there are individuals, including the late Paratene Ngata, whose values of care, compassion and connection guided their mahi. In our Hui-ā-Tau 2017, we wanted to create a space where we are able to present on, discuss, and reflect on these values and what they mean for both ourselves and our communities.
The subthemes for the 2017 Hui-a-Tau are:
Ō Tātou Oranga
As doctors, the expectations upon ourselves, and from others, often exceeds belief. As Māori doctors these expectations are multiplied. We therefore encouraged abstracts that focused on the wellbeing of Māori doctors and medical students..
We encouraged abstracts that focused on healing practices (especially Rongoā Māori) used by our communities (or ourselves) and how these practices integrate with our Western medical training.
In addition, for the Hui-ā-Tau 2017, we will have space where Rongoā Māori Practitioners can work. Profiles can be viewed within the proceedings.
