Transition and closure of CCN Programme Office

Natasha Capon |04 Mar, 2024 | All Articles |

As CCN's funding is nearing its end and most of our initiatives have transitioned to partners across the health system, our Programme Office and its work will close by 11 April 2024. This decision, though bittersweet, paves the way for a future where our pioneering work can continue under new kaitiaki | guardians and the ongoing contribution of existing CCN partners. 

Together, we've built strong, respectful, and honest relationships that have enabled us to achieve remarkable outcomes. Below is a small sample of what has been achieved during a remarkable decade:

  • Empowered service design led by clinicians and consumers, in partnership with Māori. This includes development of the Māori, Pacific and Consumer Caucus, the rural model of care community engagements and the development of Kia Kotahi Partnership in Design framework.
  • Codesigned and implemented integrated services including the regional Better Breathing Pulmonary Rehabilitation programme, community-based diabetes care enhancements, and the CREST service that supports early hospital discharge.
  • Led cross-sector development of initiatives including Mana Ake to provide mental health and wellbeing support for tamariki, whānau and schools, and Coordinated Access on Release to facilitate health service access for individuals released from prison.
  • Developed a suite of Shared Care Plans and content for HealthPathways to streamline care coordination.
  • Advanced health promotion through initiatives like improving HPV vaccination rates, introducing the Immunise for Life programme, developed the Medication Management Service to provide Medicines Use Reviews and led the design, evaluation, and promotion of oral health Menemene Mai kits.
