Presentations on two very different aspects of health relating to child wellbeing 

Sarah Williams, Nurse Consultant and Educator at Starship Community Child Health, and Dr Patrick Kelly FRACP, ONZM, paediatrician and Honorary Associate Professor in the Faculty of Medical & Health Sciences, University of Auckland and Clinical Director of the Starship child protection team with Valmai Copeland, Principal Advisor in the Evidence Centre Oranga Tamariki are presenting on two very different aspects of health relating to child wellbeing. 

Sarah will present Silos and Systems: the relationship between primary schools and health services in New Zealand – the preliminary findIngs from her research which set out to answer the question: “What is the relationship between primary schools and health services in New Zealand, and how is this influenced”. Sarah’s talk is illustrated with examples from her years working in the community alongside school staff, tamariki and whānau. 

The second presentation looks at child protection in a medical setting focusing on medical child abuse. The Oranga Tamariki Professional Practice Group commissioned a synthesis of international literature on medical child abuse which particularly considered best practice in social work when a child has experienced harm from medical child abuse (also known as factitious disorder or Munchausen’s syndrome by proxy). This rare disorder can have tragic impacts on the lives of those affected. Dr Kelly will speak from his broad practice experience and Valmai will focus on the findings of this report. 

There will be a post-presentation discussion with all three presenters available to answer questions. 

This is the eighteenth in a series of seminars hosted by the Oranga Tamariki Evidence Centre Te Pokapū TaunakitangaThe  Centre partners with a range of social sector agencies to present current research and thinking. Recordings and resources relatd to past seminars are available on the Oranga Tamariki website.
