Whakauae awarded research project funding by HRC

D3: Data, decision-making and development: Using data to improve health outcomes

In July 2017, the Health Research Council awarded a three year research project grant to Whakauae. The D3: Data, decision making and development: using data to improve health outcomes will explore how routinely gathered data can be used to stimulate improvements in health outcomes for Māori.

The research team led by Dr Boulton will partner with three DHB case study sites and use a kaupapa Māori approach to understand the way data is collected, used and interpreted. The facilitators and barriers to using data for service planning will be reviewed. The translational element of the research will include communicating successful strategies to the wider health sector.

Te Principal Investigator on the project, Dr Boulton observed the study has the potential to highlight the processes; resources; skills; and time needed to transform DHB level data into considered decisions and concrete actions that improve hauora Māori. We are especially looking forward to working in partnership with Associate Professor Tim Tenbensel and Honorary Academic Dr Pat Neuwelt both of the University of Auckland.
