Te Kete Haerenga is a codesigned online self-management toolkit. Led by Health Navigator NZ, the toolkit is a person’s “basket of knowledge” to take on their journey to wellbeing, whatever that looks like.
Designed for and with people living with long-term health conditions, the kete can be used to describe what is important to the person and their whānau, what they wish to achieve in their lives and how others can best support them in that journey.
The toolkit provides easy to understand care-planning information that both patients and clinicians can use. It’s a practical resource for nurses, health coaches, dietitians, and other health providers to support long-term condition management within a patient/practitioner partnership.
The beautifully designed Te Kete Haerenga replaces the trust’s self-management resource, Take Charge, and is the result of extensive consultation and co-design with key stakeholders, including Māori, Pasifika and tangata whaiora.
Additional resources on the Health Navigator NZ website support the toolkit and offer information on a range of topics, including sleep, chronic pain, medicines, stress and fatigue. These are designed to empower individuals to make behaviour changes and improve their quality of life, so they are more in control, know when to seek help, if needed, and are more confident to manage safely at home.
These free resources are available for download on the Health Navigator NZ website at hn.org.nz/kete
