Synopsis

Walking Backwards into the Future


We often hear the adage ‘It takes a community to raise a child’ but we have been slow to acknowledge that the best environment to nurture our whānau ‘to get well, live well and stay well’, is through active involvement from differenct agencies and professions.


Whānau ora through a coaltion of providers working in a Collective Impact Alliance model of care is creating more meaningful outcomes for whānau whilst having an eye on the social and economic return on investment.


This return on investment may be improved by simply making better use of what we have as we refocus on building health literacy and self- determination in our communities .........
