Event Case Study - Rātana Pā Whānau Hauora Marquee 2015

In 2015, Quitline decided to lead a Whānau Hauora Marquee at the Rātana Pā celebrations and invited other health organisations with an interest in Māori health to participate, thereby offering attendees access to a wide variety of health services and information. Following the event we developed a report to evaluate the success of the 2015 Rātana Pā Whānau Hauora Marquee and offer a case study for how the Hauora model may be used at other events in the future.

What Smokers Really Want - videos for nurses and other referrers

In October 2014, Smokefree Nurses Aotearoa launched a series of videos called What Smokers Really Want. The videos speak directly to nurses about how they can engage effectively with their patients around their smoking, using real life examples and personal stories.
