Course Description

Our ADHB midwifery education team is pleased to announce the commencement of Tūranga Kaupapa cultural competency education workshops at ADHB. Our new Clinical Director Primary Services, Megan Tahere has been busy working with Ngā Māia o Aotearoa, Ngā Māia ki Tāmaki Makaurau and our Auckland DHB Chief Advisor Tikanga, Dame Rangimārie Naida Glavish, to provide this education for our maternity service. The education aims to enable cultural support and guidance, increase knowledge and understanding of kaupapa Māori, develop cultural and tikanga competence, enable professional development and promote optimal health outcomes for whānau, hapū and iwi.
            Developed in 2006 by Ngā Māia o Aotearoa, Tūranga Kaupapa are a set of kaupapa Māori principles providing cultural guidelines on the values of Māori and for midwifery practice to ensure cultural requirements are met for Māori women and their whānau throughout pregnancy and childbirth. To date, Tūranga Kaupapa is the only indigenous midwifery framework in the world to be formally recognised and integrated into a country’s professional and regulatory frameworks for midwifery partnerships and practice. In collaboration with Ngā Māia o Aotearoa, Auckland DHB is leading the way nationally in recognising the importance of Tūranga Kaupapa and promoting its integration into best practice maternity care. We are the first DHB in New Zealand to collaborate with Ngā Māia o Aotearoa to deliver the recently updated education programme which is now a part of our mandatory education for maternity clinicians, commencing with new graduate midwives and all midwives new to Auckland DHB. The ultimate aim being attendance at a full day workshop by all midwives, nurses and doctors working in Women’s Health.
