Workshop thought-provoking, say participants

Thought-provoking, motivational and well-presented was just some of the feedback from participants at HPF’s Pasifika Health Promotion workshop at the Waitakere Resource Centre in Auckland last Friday. (Oct 18)

Participants agreed they had come away from the workshop armed with new information and knowledge and would be more aware of the other determinants of health before meeting clients.

“The information was super-interesting, relevant, empowering and quite confronting,” said Kim Esau from the Diabetes Foundation Aotearoa.

“The workshop not only solidified already known information, but it built upon that foundation by quite a few layers – wonderful!”

Trish Fleming from Hospice West Auckland said she gained a better understanding of how to “meet Pasifika families where they are at”.

Jill Iti of the Royal District Nursing Service NZ said the workshop refreshed her ideas and beliefs and provided impetus to develop a workshop for staff.
