Happy new year everyone. Te Pou offices are now open for 2021.
Let’s get real values and attitudes are intended to express the shared approach which applies across healthcare regardless of role, profession and organisation and will complement organisation-specific values.
The values are respect, manaaki, hope, partnership, wellbeing and whanaungatanga.
Values informed practice is about recognising people’s values and understanding how to work with them. Workers are more likely to effectively respond to and work in partnership with people accessing services.
Using a values informed approach at an organisational level promotes the service and team cultures needed to enhance our ways of working with people and whānau accessing services.
A feature of values is they are ‘action-guiding’, which means they underpin all decisions and are therefore highly relevant to decision-making in a health context.
The attitudes are grouped into five themes: compassionate, genuine, honest, open-minded and optimistic.
The Let’s get real team works with people in our sector to bring lived experience and practice perspectives to our work. The team has captured some of these insights in the following videos about values informed practice.
Kahurangi Fergusson-Tibble, No Te Tairawhiti, me Te Arawa hoki, Principal Advisor Māori at Te Pou and an Addictions practitioner for over 10 years, describes using values informed approaches in practice, incorporating perspectives for Māori.
Romy Lee, Youth Consumer Advisor, Werry Workforce Whāraurau, talks about her experiences of values informed approaches.
Jason Haitana, Consumer Advisor, Northland DHB, highlights his perspectives on values informed approaches from the stand-point of a peer leader and a person accessing services.
Andrew Raven, Psychologist, Hawke's Bay DHB, reflects on applying values to his clinical practice.
In this 1-minute video, Kahurangi Fergusson-Tibble, No Te Tairawhiti, me Te Arawa hoki, Principal Advisor Māori at Te Pou and an Addictions practitioner for over 10 years, provides us with a helpful metaphor about a values informed approach to practice.
Our Let's get real team held a webinar providing practical tips and tools to use values-informed approaches when working with people and whānau in remote practices. You can now watch a recording of this webinar.
