Kia Kotahi Partnership in Design shared with Health Quality and Safety Commission
Members of the Health Quality and Safety Commission (HQSC) tīma (team) were one of the latest to hear about the Kia Kotahi Partnership in Design framework, a values-based framework which puts people and their whānau at the centre of designing equitable health services.
Hauora Māori and Equity Lead Ngaire Button, Senior Project Facilitator Koral Fitzgerald and Project Facilitator Brooke Kaminski presented to more than 70 people at a HQSC hui (meeting) last month about using the framework.
“There was interest in how we have applied the framework, so we spoke about Pae Ora ki Waitaha, a co-design project to explore how the health system can better support the pae ora (healthy futures) of all,” says Koral.
“The Pae Ora ki Waitaha project working group piloted Kia Kotahi Partnership in Design as a process for engaging and sustaining community voices in the planning, development and refining of health and wellbeing services.”
Brooke who is the newest member of the CCN Programme Team and Kia Kotahi Partnership in Design project team said she really enjoyed being able to present to the group and add in her personal experience and view of why the framework is so important.
Supporting resources and information about Kia Kotahi Partnership in Design is available on the CCN website including a recorded webinar and a case study about how the Pae Ora ki Waitaha project was achieved using the Kia Kotahi Partnership in Design framework.
