Culturally Unsafe: Accessing Hospital Services

Nov. 26, 2021, 1:34 p.m.

A new paper has been released on roadblocks and solutions for Maōri access to hospital services. Dr Emma Espiner of The University of Auckland talks to us about moving from simply identifying the issues to working on the solutions, especially these times of the Covid-19 pandemic. An issue raised was trusted voices and health care. A taxi chit may solve a transport problem, but what if the taxi takes you to a racist health service. 

The research foundf that Māori experienced hostility, racism, poor communication, practical barriers to accessing care, and roadblocks to community-based care, including feeling culturally unsafe.
