Service development

Pro-equity practices collaborate with partners in the community to develop equitable services and programmes that foster an inclusive and culturally safe environment for patients, whānau, and the communities they serve.

Pro-equity practice teams use current and accurate quantitative and qualitative data to inform initiatives to promote health equity outcomes.

Te whakatere waka has four criteria, and to meet these practices have to provide evidence of:

  1. Ethnicity data.
  2. Data and audit findings that are displayed for team members in the staff room, or other shared space.
  3. Team meeting notes with health equity as a standing agenda item.
  4. A plan outlining how the practice develops and delivers services and programmes that promote and monitor health equity outcomes.
  5. Patient and/or whānau surveys or other types of feedback that include assessments of cultural safety.
