Let's get real launches new resource and e-learning

Fresh new resources are now available to enhance how support is provided for people with mental health and addiction needs in any health setting.

Complete with colourful illustrations, Let’s get real now comes with the guide and e-learning Tātou tātou: being with people and whānau.

This is part of the Real Skill: Working with people experiencing mental health and addiction needs and replaces Engagement essentials and the e-learning He whakapāpā, he oranga – Engaging for wellbeing.

Developed by the Let’s get real team, programme lead Trish Gledhill said the change was driven by the need to reach our wider health workforce and to respond to other Let’s get real developments.

“It’s recognising that people have diverse needs for accessing information, people are coming from different backgrounds in a wide range of health workforce roles ,” Trish said.

The newly designed resources and e-learning was developed to be colourful, inviting and easy to use for all audiences.

A number of stakeholders and people across Te Pou were part of a process where they contributed valuable knowledge and insights.

Trish said stakeholders represented the range of people they worked with.

While Let’s get real is mostly aimed at those in the health sector, this resource can be used by people in many settings.

The six-page downloadable guide outlines the main elements of how to engage with people and whānau.

For a more in-depth understanding, e-learning provides modules to explore the value of effective engagement and the key aspects of engaging effectively with people and whānau across our diverse populations.

An A3 poster and an evidence summary on engagement will also be available soon.

These will complement the guide and e-learning and provide a suite of resources relating to engagement, as part of our wider collection of Let’s get real learning tools.
