Tēnā koe Chris
Your Official Information Act request, reference: GOV-013434
Thank you for your email of 16 August 2021 asking for the following information under the Official
Information Act 1982 (the Act):
1. I'm wanting to request a copy of the following literature review recorded in the 2017 evaluation
by Hayward et al of ACC's My Home is My Marae initiative:
Cherrington L, Masters B. Literature review of Māori models of health and indigenous injury
prevention and health promotion interventions. Prepared for Ronald Karaitiana, Cultural
Strategies Manager, Injury Prevention. Wellington, New Zealand: Accident Compensation
Corporation, 2005.I would be grateful to receive an electronic copy if still available.
2. I would also like to request any further information you could provide regarding subsequent
related work done or reports following the 2017 evaluation - i.e. what decision-making may have
occurred regarding continuing the my home is my marae initiative or similar and are there any
current plans or initiatives of a similar nature in progress relating Maori approaches to safety in
homes within ACC activity?
Please find attached a copy of the requested literature review.
A recent study done by the University of Otago (in collaboration with Massey University) of falls
incidence in Māori homes used ACC data and has been recently published in the Lancet Journal, found here.
The Māori Injury Prevention (IP) portfolio is broadly captured in this question. Currently there are no
initiatives in progress specifically relating to Māori approaches to safety in homes. However, our
emerging strategy has identified Oranga Taiao as an outcome area of future focus for IP. Oranga Taiao
means that whānau, hapū, iwi, and hapori live in healthy and supportive environments and this is likely
to include all places and spaces that Māori live their lives. Who to contact
If you have any questions, you can email me at [email address]
