Article examines Indigenous guidance in mortality reporting

October 15, 2021 at 3:10 PM

From the NZFVC 

A new article reflects on the use of a Māori responsive rubric, Te Pou, and related guidelines by the Family Violence Death Review Committee (FVDRC) when producing their sixth report. 

The article, Getting the Story Right: Reflecting on an Indigenous Rubric to Guide the Interpretation of Mortality Data, was authored by FVDRC Chair Fiona Cram (Ngāti Pāhauwera), Senior Policy Analyst at the Health Quality & Safety Commission Heidi Cannell (Ngāti Apakura) and FVDRC Senior Specialist Pauline Gulliver. 

Te Pou (2019) is a Māori responsive rubric designed to provide guidance to mortality review committees at the Health Quality & Safety Commission for interpreting and reporting on Māori mortality. Te Pou outlines four pou 

  • Tika (Getting the story and the interpretation right) 

  • Manaakitanga (Being culturally and socially responsible) 

  • Mana (Advancing equity, self-determination, and social justice) 

  • Mahi tahi (Establishing relationships for positive change). 

The authors examine how the FVDRC addressed each of the four pou when developing, writing and sharing their sixth report. The authors also discuss lessons learned and highlighted where ongoing work was required.
