Karanga / Call for Abstracts:
Te Ohu Rata o Aotearoa (Te ORA) welcomes all Māori Doctors,
Medical Students and other interested parties to submit abstracts
that related to the theme and subthemes of the 2017 Hui-a-Tau.
The theme for the 2017 Hui-a-Tau is: Poipoia ō tātou
ngākau - Care, compassion and connection
Te ORA is an organisation that represents all Māori
doctors. In the Te ORA whakapapa, there are individuals,
including the late Paratene Ngata, whose values of care, compassion
and connection guided their mahi. In our Hui-ā-Tau 2017, we
want to create a space where we are able to present on, discuss,
and reflect on these values and what they mean for both ourselves
and our communities.
The subthemes for the 2017 Hui-a-Tau are:

As doctors, the expectations upon ourselves, and from others,
often exceeds belief. As Māori doctors these expectations are
multiplied. We therefore encourage abstracts that focus on
the wellbeing of Māori doctors and medical students.
We encourage abstracts that focus on healing practices
(especially Rongoa Māori) used by our communities (or ourselves)
and how these practices integrate with our Western medical
In addition, for the Hui-ā-Tau 2017, we will have space where
Rongoa Māori Practitioners can work.
