Kia āta kōwhiri Choosing Wisely

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

We focus on restorative practice and hohou te rongo, which is peace-making from a te ao Māori view. This mahi appreciates that relationships make us human, they can be positive or harmful, and they are important in our healing.

When harm occurs, restorative approaches provide a framework for restoring wellbeing, relationships and trust through respectful dialogue, collaboration and consensus. 

A 15-minute introduction video to restorative practice and hohou to rongo is available here.

The Commission acknowledges our partners in this mahi:
