Te Pū rauemi KOWHEORI-19 COVID-19 resource hub

Support for people working in health during the COVID-19 pandemic. Find information about how you can support yourselves and others, including consumers, teams and colleagues which complements and aligns with Ministry of Health resources.

Kia āta kōwhiri Choosing Wisely

The Choosing Wisely campaign seeks to reduce harm from unnecessary and low-value tests and treatment.

This hub is no longer being updated. For more details, please see the about us page.  

We can learn a great deal from adaptations made by the health and disability sector during the COVID pandemic, and through learning, provide better, more equitable and accessible services and be better prepared for future challenges.

The adaptations made by organisations have varied, from hygiene care packages and kai parcels to embracing telemedicine. Many are being evaluated to be retained rather than returning to ‘how it was before’; others have been less successful, but we can still learn from them by understanding the context and barriers involved.

Sharing stories is one way to share knowledge and understanding. The resources included here have been curated and approved for sharing. We will add to them over time.

If you know of other stories that could be considered for inclusion, please email with COVID-19 in the subject line.
