  • studying the higher incidence rate Māori experience with specific cancers compared to non-Māori
  • identifying specific sets of issues experienced by Māori health service users
  • investigating and critiquing the lower engagement rate for Māori with prevention, early detection, screening programmes, treatment, and medication
  • looking at the role primary and health professionals play in improving cancer survival rates for Māori
  • researching how to best design, develop, and roll-out an early detection and/or wellbeing programme
  • identifying where whānau ‘touch’ the system to identify ‘moments of impact’ where bias (unconscious or deliberate) consistently occurs
  • exploring a conceptual best practice whānau-centric model of cancer care.
