2018 Campbell Ballantyne Fellowship awarded


The 2018 Campbell Ballantyne Fellowship has been awarded to Sally Crawford, Nurse Maude's Regional Manager, HomeCare, Nelson/Marlborough and Catherine Jordan, Nurse Maude's Home Care Manager, Canterbury, to trial development of a whānau ora model of homecare.  In Nelson/Marlborough this will be in conjunction with Te Hauora o Ngati Rarua and in Canterbury with Etu Pasifika.  

The trial will involve Nurse Maude employing a designated family/whānau member to provide home care to their kaumatua/matua who have been assessed as requiring home support, with support from the agency to ensure cultural competency.  It is anticipated that 3 families will be involved in the trial in each region.

The aim is to provide a wrap-around service that meets the home support and other identified needs of the kaumatua and their whānau.
