Whitireia dean named on health advisory group
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.
