  1. A FOCUS ON Lung Health Equity Hei Ahuru Mowai National

    Maori Cancer Leadership Group through the organised efforts of society . . . lung health inequities are avoidable and fixable Dr Nina Scott, Ngati Whatua, Waikato, FNZCPHM, MPH, MBChB, DipComChildH, DipChildH Chair Hei Ahuru Mowai, National Maori Cancer Leadership Group ncott.waikato@gmail.com
  2. How do inequities happen? 1. determinants of health 2. health

    care access 3. Health care quality Inequities are differences between groups which are Unfair – Avoidable - Fixable Assume inequities occur at every step of every care pathway unless proven otherwise small inequities add up to big inequities, so there is no silver bullet, but if I had to pick one, it would be standardisation of care inequities point to where standardisation is needed first, and show what can be achieved at a minimum for Maori, plus show where to get relatively cheap and quick health gains for the total population Jones CP. 2001.

International Journal of Health Services 22: 429–445. p. 431
  3. Achieving Equity our approach Systems approach – beyond victim blaming

    “The most likely explanation for this [inequity] is that Maori have a cultural reluctance to present for health care” Lamb DS, Bupha-Intr O, Bethwaite P, et al. 2008. Prostate cancer – are ethnic minorities disadvantaged? Anticancer Research 28: 3891–6. Its all about the ‘gaze’ where we look for the defects

  9. Aotearoa has an inequity generating environment

  10. How to achieve lung health equity? Ask questions • What

    do the data say for Maori and Pacific? Data are numbers and stories • Where and what are the equity gaps? • How are we going to close the gaps? • Who can we partner with? Equity in determinants of lung health, access, timeliness and quality of lung health care

  13. BASIC PRINCIPLES OF CANCER (mate pukupuku) CONTROL World Health Organisation

    • Leadership • Involvement of related sectors in decision-making • Partnership • Evidence based decision-making • Systemic approach - a comprehensive programme with interrelated key components sharing the same goals and integrated with other related programmes • Continuous quality improvement • Stepwise approach to planning and implementing interventions
  14. A national equity focussed lung health control programme is a

    public health programme designed to reduce and achieve equity in the number of lung disease cases and deaths and improve quality of life for patients with lung disease and their whanau/fanau, through the systematic and equitable implementation of evidence-based strategies for prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and palliation, making the best use of available resources. http://www.who.int/cancer/nccp/en/
  15. The National Bowel Cancer Working Group is concerned that there

    are differences in bowel cancer survival between groups of New Zealanders which are inequitable. Inequities, by definition, are unfair, avoidable and remedial. Our approach to addressing inequities in bowel cancer survival is to standardise care in the areas along the diagnosis to treatment pathway, where inequities are most likely to occur.

  16. Equity focus for all lung health control activities; governance, priority

    setting, research, quality control and reporting Quality ethnicity data collection, analysis, reporting.
