Whi­tireia dean named on health ad­vi­sory group

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Whi­tireia Com­mu­nity Polytech­nic fac­ulty of Health Dean Dr Kathryn Holloway has been ap­pointed to the ex­pert ad­vi­sory group as­sist­ing the Min­istry of Health to de­velop a fresh New Zealand Health Strat­egy.

The strat­egy pro­vides the min­istry with a strate­gic op­er­a­tional frame­work, ef­fec­tively set­ting the pa­ram­e­ters for the health sys­tem.

The cur­rent strat­egy was re­leased in 2000, but much has changed since, in­clud­ing a grow­ing age­ing pop­u­la­tion and rapid de­vel­op­ments in tech­nol­ogy.

Holloway was one of five ap­pointees to the ad­vi­sory group, which in­cludes a mix­ture of health aca­demics, se­nior clin­i­cians, an econ­o­mist and a dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy ex­pert.
