If the heart of harakeke was removed, where will the bellbird sing?
If I was asked, what was the most important thing in the world;
I would reply, It is people, it is people, it is people
Manaaki Mana: Excellence in Emergency Care for Māori Consultation
One year ago, a hui was convened in Auckland with a large group of stakeholders from Aotearoa to discuss ways in which ACEM can work in partnership to achieve equity for Māori in Aotearoa New Zealand emergency departments. The hui led to the establishment of a steering group to oversee the development of a strategy for ACEM.
The strategy is called Manaaki Mana: Excellence in Emergency Care for Māori. The vision for the strategy is that emergency departments in Aotearoa New Zealand will embody Pae Ora (Healthy futures for whānau), providing excellent, culturally safe care to Māori, in an environment where Māori patients, whānau and staff feel valued, and where leaders actively seek to eliminate inequities.
That strategy is now in its final draft, and we welcome your feedback. You can provide your comment in the form below. Consultation will close on 3 April 2019.

Equity for Māori in Aotearoa New Zealand Emergency Departments Hui
A very successful hui (meeting) was held on 8 March 2018 in Auckland at Te Manukanuka o Hoturoa Marae. A broad range of stakeholders working in emergency departments, health research and other Colleges met to discuss ways in which ACEM can work in partnership to achieve equity for Māori in New Zealand Emergency Departments.
A joint project between the Indigenous Health Committee and the New Zealand Faculty, the hui involved a formal pōwhiri, a range of speakers and robust and spirited workshop sessions.
The insights and input collated from the hui have informed the development of the College’s long term strategy. The ACEM Board has committed to the formation of a Steering Group to oversee this work.

Rōpū Whakahaere/Steering Group
ACEM has established a rōpū whakahaere/steering group to provide leadership for the College to develop a Māori Equity Strategy for implementation by the College and its members.
ACEM is honoured to have been gifted the name Manaaki Mana for this strategy by Dame Naida Glavish, Chief Advisor, Tikanga Māori, Auckland District Health Board & Waitemata District Health Board. We thank Dame Naida for this generous gift.
The Manaaki Mana Steering Group met to finalise the strategy in early December 2018. The strategy is now provided for consultation to our stakeholders.
We look forward to launching the strategy at Te Wero, the ACEM Winter Symposium in Rotorua, Aotearoa New Zealand (30 April – 3 May 2019).
