Tapuhi Kaitiaki Awards

PHARMAC, in conjunction with Te Poari o Te Rūnanga o Aotearoa/New Zealand Nurses Organisation (NZNO), established the Tapuhi Kaitiaki Awards in recognition of the positive impact Māori nurses have on whānau and the role they play as key influencers on health outcomes. 

The awards are to support Māori nurses to continue their studies and their clinical practice.  They will provide tautoko and manaaki for Māori nurses for their ongoing development in the New Zealand health system. The awards will be run annually, and presented at the Indigenous Nurses Conference.

Tapuhi Kaitiaki awards will be in two different categories.
 

Category One - Nurse Practitioner or Nurse Prescribing Award

The exciting development of designated nurse prescriber roles means that more nurses will be able to move to prescriber status more quickly. This award acknowledges those Māori nurses who are on a professional development journey to become a nurse prescriber to advance their clinical practice and expertise.
 

Category Two - Māori Nurse Mātauranga Award

This award is open to nurses who wish to further their study and/or would like to develop an innovative way to assist whānau, hapū and iwi to access and understand their medicines.  It is also available to enrolled nurses who wish to study toward registered nurse status.

He aha te mea nui o te ao - He tāngata he tāngata he tāngata

What is the most important thing in the world - it is people it is people it is people

 

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

As indigenous nursing professionals we are committed to reaffirming our rights under the United Nations Declaration of Indigenous people’s article 3, to self-determine, and this will underpin any future Māori nursing strategy.  Just as our early Māori nursing pioneers, like Te Akenehi Hei realised, we have nothing to fear when moving forward, our tipuna made the sacrifice, we must ensure our future mokopuna, whānau, and hapū and iwi receive the best health care available in Aotearoa.

The tensions of being a nurse and being a Māori nurse, has often been raised at Te Rūnanga Hui. The ability to work in two worlds has been long reflected in our bicultural heritage which has long documented the tensions between western ideologies and Māori models of wellbeing.

Te Poari know that Māori nurses add value and make a difference to the health and wellbeing for all people of Aotearoa, but we also recognise sometime achieving this comes with making some personal sacrifices and challenges.

These presentations are in recognition of regionals members who have supported member’s within their rohi by contributing to the development of;

  • Māori workforce development
  • Poipoia kua Puawai – tuakana teina support
  • Responsiveness to Māori members and whānau, hapū, Iwi initiatives

All nominations are to be received by the Te Poari representative from the rohe, with a brief profile of the candidate.

All awards will be presented at Indigenous Nurses Aotearoa Conference Hakari.
