Successful webinar held for Kia Kotahi Partnership in Design

More than 230 people from across Aotearoa signed up for the ‘Introduction to Kia Kotahi Partnership in Design’ (KKPID) webinar presented by CCN on Monday 17 October.
Kia Kotahi Partnership in Design is a framework to design programmes and services together with communities and improve equitable outcomes for hauora (health and wellbeing) services. 

The webinar was presented by members of the team who helped to develop KKPID – CCN Hauora Māori and Equity Lead Ngaire Button, Pegasus Health Director of Hauora Māori and Equity Irihāpeti Mahuika and CCN Senior Project Facilitator / Programme Manager Koral Fitzgerald. 

The session covered how to use the KKPID framework and start the journey to creating more accessible and equitable services. 

Ngaire Button who led the development of KKPID said it was heartening to see so many people from a range of health and wellbeing professions and locations across the motu (country) register for the webinar. 

“It’s encouraging to see the appetite to create more inclusive health services in partnership with our increasingly diverse community growing,” says Ngaire. 

“The questions asked demonstrated the genuine commitment people have to the process, including how to apply the framework in aged residential care facilities and how to navigate the space when you don’t have a strong cultural knowledge.”

Irihāpeti Mahuika says the time is now for courageous, collaborative and co-led pathways to designing all parts of our new health systems.

Some of the attendees said they appreciated the frank discussion the panel shared about what they have learnt from past co-design processes and what needs to be considered going forward. 

Pegasus Health Equally Well Project Lead John Robinson said KKPID is inspiring mahi and the webinar was co-delivered in alignment with the spirit of the content. 

Feedback from other attendees about what they will consider going forward; included:

  • ‘Excellent delivery of a clearly set out process to follow, look forward to bringing into our daily practice.’
  • ‘Food for thought and a process to follow in reconfiguring the project I am involved with.’
  • ‘True partnership, takes time and the importance of ensuring outcomes of the design have been shared with everyone.’
  • ‘Keep the focus on empowering community voice in service design and delivery.’
  • ‘To ensure that we all have equal power and decision making.’

The webinar also covered: 

  • Whakapapa of how the framework was created.
  • Why it is important we change how we design services.
  • Ngā uara (values) woven throughout the framework.
  • The six steps in the framework.
  • Tauira (examples) and case studies of how to use the framework when you’re co-designing services
