Māori strategy measures

He Ihu Waka, He Ihu Whenua, He Ihu Tangata 2022-2024 is the College's Māori strategy. This page outlines the measures that chart the progress of the strategy.

Outcome and Targets

Outcome one: We increase the number of Māori Fellows and their participation in College medical education roles.

  • The annual intake of Māori GPEP registrars is greater than the proportional % of the Māori population.
  • At least 90% of all GPEP1 Māori registrars will achieve Fellowship within five years.
  • At least 20% of all College medical education workforce roles are held by Māori Fellows.

Outcome two: The GP Workforce is pro-equity, Treaty-compliant culturally safe and anti-racist.

  • Educational outcomes of GPEP, as per the 2022 curriculum domains of Equity and Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and the Hauora Māori course descriptors prepare GPEP registrars to achieve Fellowship.
  • 50% of general practices have achieved the Cornerstone Equity Module by December 2024.
  • All Fellows active in CPD must include goals focused on cultural safety, health equity (hauora Māori) in their annual Professional Development Plan.

Outcome three: We work in partnership to advocate for and influence equitable health outcomes for Māori.

  • Design an agile response framework that provides timely and robust input to influence health advocacy and policy.
  • Commission evidence-based Māori health research that seeks to improve equitable health outcomes.
  • Continue to develop Te Whāriki Taurite me ōna Mātāpono and implement throughout the College structure.
