This best practice evidence review presents a synthesis of best practice in the delivery of care for whānau to help inform the development of a transformational kaupapa Māori model of care for Whānau Āwhina Plunket. A model of care defines the way health services are delivered and determines how resources are prioritised, allocated and planned. It also outlines best practice care and services for individuals and whānau.

This report is structured into two main sections: Kōrero ā-tuhi, which presents the best practice findings from the desk-top review, and Kōrero ā-waha, which presents the key findings from the oral sources. A summary is provided at the end of the document which synthesises the findings from these two sources.
