Te Whatu Ora Southern case study: Te Ara Mārama – Improving transition of care to the community for Māori trauma...

28 Jun 2023

Transitioning from inpatient rehabilitation back into the home environment can be a difficult time for patients who have experienced major trauma. Factors identified as making returning to the home environment challenging include: an absence of support in the community, confusion about what assistance services are available, a need for more culturally responsive care and ongoing physical and mental effects of injury.

This project, Te Ara Mārama, aimed to encourage collaboration between community health providers and inpatient rehabilitation services to support Māori trauma patients in their transition from inpatient to community care.
