This framework has been adopted by practitioners in health and social services across a number of roles and disciplines and in various rohe, and it has been adapted to meet the needs of public health practitioners, HR teams and Whānau ora collectives.
People engaging in other competency requirements of their profession (such as social workers and nurses) have found the framework a useful complement to evidence their Māori responsiveness requirements.
The development of the framework, its structure and systems, has been a collaborative effort over several years by a group of individuals and at times has involved Ngā Manga Puriri, ADHB Māori Mental Health, NAC, Matua Raḵi and the Northern Region Māori Workforce Development Group. The Roopu Kaitiaki continues to safeguard and preserve the cultural and intellectual integrity of the taonga they shaped.
