Lay summary
The research aims are to develop a deeper understanding on the experiences of Māori patients who use continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). This will be explored by adopting a Kaupapa Māori Research approach within a qualitative framework. We will learn more of Māori patient experiences through the use of a Kaupapa Māori Research and this will allow for Māori participants to guide the research process, as well as gain empowerment, decolonise current westernised beliefs and provide tino rangatiratanga (self-determination).
