Nurses from the upper South Island are holding their annual convention in Nelson today, discussing the role of nurses in delivering heath for all.

New Zealand Nurses Organisation kaiwhakahaere Kerri Nuku says it’s an area of rapid growth and also rising inequity, with big gaps between rich and poor.

She’s impressed with the way the district health board has embraced the challenges of biculturalism and cultural competency and tried to integrate it into the way policies are developed and implemented.

That’s reflected in the convention.

"Culture is integrated and certainly challenged throughout the whole delivery of this programme today but also you can see there is a realness in the way Māori are seen to be consulted and there is real value in what they add to the delivery of any service change, any programme innovation, so I think this region is doing pretty well." Ms Nuku says.

The convention is also discussing the need for pay parity for nursing staff and kaimahi hauora in Māori and iwi providers.

The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology is that it's not really an apology at all because they still believe they had every right to take the infant and are apologising for the lack of communication.

Nothing highlights the denial of colonialism quite like the Parihaka apology
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: We must never allow the perfect to defeat the good, but the fact that it's taken 138 years to formally apologise for the tragedy of Parihaka speaks volumes about the cultural denial of the negative effects of colonialism.
