Lay summary
This Career Development Award placement activity will explore the potential for co-location of other health interventions within the planned Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and Atrial Fibrillation screening programme for Māori in Te Taitokerau. Through a co-design process with participants, whānau, community and Iwi/Māori Health Providers the research aims to gain a greater understanding of the utility and acceptability of co-located services for communities and health providers, that could appropriately be incorporated within a screening session, and how the session may need to be approached to do this successfully for Māori, in a rural context. The placement role will explore the concept of co-located services in a way that aligns to the specific needs of the Te Taitokerau population and the aspirations of the Māori Health Directorate, Iwi and Māori provider network, and furthers the career aspirations of the applicant to use local evidence to inform Māori health planning and delivery.
