Applying kaupapa Māori research practices when working kaumātua
The use of kaupapa Māori research practices is helpful for doing meaningful research that has positive impacts for Māori and communities. Kaupapa Māori research practices include manaaki ki te tangata (caring and honouring those involved in research) and kanohi kitea (being present and seen in the community). This presentation will provide real-world examples of how these practices have been used in research with kaumātua and the challenges and benefits that come with increased recognition of kaupapa Māori research and health service development.
