Cultural Awareness at Te Puia
Thursday 25th June 2020
12.30 - 5.30 pm
Buses will leave the Rotorua Events Centre at 12.10 pm.
Changes to the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act in 2019 strengthened the requirements for all Health Practitioners to adhere to standards of cultural competence (including competencies that will enable effective and respectful interaction with Māori).
This workshop being held at the amazing Te Puia will include lunch in a fabulous restaurant that overlooks wonderous bubbling mud, pools of boiling water, and stunning geysers.
You will participate in an interactive workshop designed to build cultural competency and enable you to engage confidently with Māori. You will practice pronunciation and learn some useful phrases for engaging with Māori; gain insight into fundamental Māori beliefs and knowledge of cultural etiquette.
This workshop will include korerorero (discussion) with two PodiatryNZ members who will bring a wealth of information and understanding on the Maori health perspective.
This workshop will provide 4 hours of Cultural Safety CPD for the Podiatrists Registration Board.
