Engaging Pasifika cultural competency training impact 2020-2021

Supporting our non-Pasifika health workforce to enhance their cultural responsiveness is an essential means to improve quality and access to health and disability services. It is a blended learning programme which has both online and face-to-face components that help equip our non-Pasifika health workers with foundational cultural knowledge, the right attitude and skills to authentically engage with Pasifika.  A recent refresh of Engaging Pasifika was undertaken to reflect the organic evolution of the programme since inception and to help meet the demand. We are excited about these changes and we thank you for your patience while this was in progress. We are now ready for the New Dawn.

A total of 27 workshops were delivered across New Zealand.
