Keteparaha: A Community Framework to Support Maori Ageing and End of Life StudyThe aim of this research is to identify and develop a framework for a compassionate community toolkit to support a South Auckland Māori community with healthy ageing and end-of-life care. A Māori community research focus will inform the framework development and the toolkit pilot. During this project the researcher will work closely with kaumātua, Māori researchers and international experts to focus on a strengths based approach empowering Māori communities to improve health and well-being for ageing Māori people.This research will help to support kaumātua, whānau, Māori communities and health professionals to access critical information and resources to assist older Māori to age well; also supporting their whānau carers with better resources to provide care at end-of-life.2020
