Health systems and decolonisation: Preliminary activities to understand health system perspectives
Project supervisor: Dr Karen Wright
Institution: Waipapa Taumata Rau
Raumati intern: Nadine Everson (Te Arawa)
Project Summary: The aim of this internship is to design a survey to capture health system perspectives of decolonisation. Key activities include stakeholder mapping, analysis and engagement, and development of a survey to capture health organisation understandings and beliefs about decolonisation, and to scope current activities consistent with decolonisation.
The intern will be supervised by Dr Karen Wright (University of Auckland), and the internship will contribute to a larger project led by Kaupapa Māori researchers at Te Kupenga Hauora Māori, Waipapa Taumata Rau, Dr Karen Wright and Professor Papaarangi Reid. This project will provide foundational understanding and insight into decolonisation and the health system in Aotearoa.
Research activities will provide the student with the opportunity to work within a Kaupapa Māori research team and support development of project management, stakeholder analysis and engagement, and survey writing skills. The survey produced will be used in future research to provide insight into health system stakeholder perspectives of decolonisation.
