1. Crengle, Suzanne Marie. The management of children's asthma in primary care : Are there ethnic differences in care?.

Degree: 2008, University of Auckland

Background Asthma is a common problem in New Zealand, and is associated with significant morbidity and costs to children, their families, and wider society. Previously published New Zealand literature suggested that M??ori and Pacific children were less likely than NZ European children to receive asthma medications and elements of asthma education, had poorer knowledge of asthma, and experienced greater morbidity and hospitalisations. However, none of the previous literature had been specifically designed to assess the nature of asthma care in the community, or to specifically answer whether there were ethnic disparities in care. A systematic review of studies published in the international literature that compared asthma management among different ethnic groups drawn from community-based samples was undertaken. The results of this review suggested that minority ethnic group children were less likely to receive elements of asthma medication use, asthma education and self-management (action) plans. Objectives The primary objectives of the study were to: ??? describe the use of medications, medication delivery systems, asthma education, and self-management plans in primary care for M??ori, Pacific, and Other ethnic group children ??? ascertain whether there were any ethnic disparities in the use of medications, medication delivery systems, asthma education, and self-management plans in primary care after controlling for differences in socio-economic position and other potential confounders. Secondary objectives were to: ??? describe the asthma-related utilisation of GP, after hours medical care, emergency departments, and hospital admissions among M??ori, Pacific, and Other ethnic group children with asthma ??? ascertain whether differences in medication use, the provision of asthma education, and the provision of self-management plans explained ethnic differences in health service utilisation. Methods A cross-sectional survey was conducted in Auckland, New Zealand. The caregivers of 647 children who were aged 2???14 years, had a diagnosis of asthma or experienced ???wheeze or whistling in the chest???, and had experienced symptoms in the previous 12 months were identified using random residential address start points and door knocking. Ethnically stratified sampling ratios were used to ensure that approximately equal numbers of children of M??ori, Pacific and Other ethnicity were enrolled into the study. A face-to-face interview was conducted with the caregivers of these children. Data was collected about: socio-demographic factors; asthma morbidity; asthma medications and delivery devices; exposure to, and experiences of, asthma education and asthma action plans; and asthma-related health services utilisation. Results In this study, the caregivers of 647 eligible children were invited to participate and 583 completed the interview, giving an overall completion rate of 90.1%. There were no ethnic differences in completion rates. The overall use of inhaled corticosteroid… Advisors/Committee Members: Professor Bruce Arroll, Dr Paul Brown.

2. Ramsamy, Krishnasamy. Colonisation: the Experience of a Psychiatric Nurse Through the Lens of Reflective Autobiography.

Degree: 2006, Victoria University of Wellington

The oppression of colonization lives on in the daily lives of colonized people. It is vital for us as nurses to understand the effects of that oppression, as well as the restrictive impacts, and dislocation from one's land and culture to-day. Nurses come from both the descendants of colonisers and the colonised. This thesis is a journey and a quest for insights into the impacts and significances of colonisation by looking at historical and socio-political contexts that have bearing on the health of colonised people who remain mostly powerless and marginalized. It is prompted in response to a cultural safety model which advocates that nurses should become familiar with their own background and history in order to be culturally safe in practice. This reflective autobiographical account is a personal effort and provides the foundation for an exploration of issues during nursing practice encounters, from a colonised ethnic minority perspective. The method was informed by Moustakas research approach and Johnstone's Reflective Topical Autobiographical process. The selection of specific events are deliberate, to make visible some of the many barriers that exist within our health structures as pertinent issues for non-dominant cultures that remain on the margin of our society. Maori issues provide a contrast and became a catalyst for me as the author while working for kaupapa Maori services in Aotearoa/New Zealand. The intention of this thesis is to generate new knowledge about what it means to be a nurse from an ethnic minority working in a kaupapa Maori mental health service, and to encourage other nurses to explore these issues further. Some recommendations are made for nurses in the last chapter, as I believe that they are ideally situated to build upon the strengths indigenous people already have and contribute positively toward the improvement of poor health outcomes of the colonized people in an embracing and collective way. Advisors/Committee Members: Bickley, Joy, Phillips, Brian, McEldowney, Rose.

3. Crengle, Suzanne Marie. M?? Papatuanuku, ka Tipu ng?? R??kau: a case study of the well child health programme provided by Te Wh??nau O Waipareira Trust.

Degree: 1997, University of Auckland

This thesis presents a case study of the well child health programme provided by Te Wh??nau O Waipareira Trust. Child health is acknowledged as a health gain priority area. Well child health programmes are considered to be important components of child health services, and have been provided in New Zealand since 1907. The health status of M??ori children remains poorer than that of non-M??ori children. Te Wh??nau O Waipareira Trust is an urban M??ori organisation which provides a comprehensive range of health, training and employment, and social services. It begun providing health services in 1991 and is an example of a ???by M??ori, for M??ori??? health service. M??ori have expressed the belief that ???by M??ori, for M??ori??? health services will be more accessible, acceptable, and appropriate for the M??ori community. However, there is little information available about ???by M??ori, for M??ori??? services. This thesis provides a description of the well child health programme and a ???by M??ori, for M??ori??? health service. It also discusses the well child health programme within broader social and political contexts. Kaupapa M??ori theory forms the theoretical framework of this thesis. Qualitative methodology and methods, including focus groups, individual interviews and document analysis, were used to develop the case study. The Te Wh??nau O Waipareira Trust well child health programme is described in detail, and discussed. Conclusions are drawn and several important issues are raised. Advisors/Committee Members: Fiona Cram.
