Who should I see? Patient experiences of visiting General Practitioners and Rongoa Practitioners

3 months
Approved budget:
Rebecca White
Health issue:
Other (generic health or health services)
Proposal type:
Māori Health Summer Studentship
Lay summary
There is a lack of formal communication and partnerships between whare orange and GP services. Patients therefore have to manage their own movement between these services, and generally see both General Practitioners and rongoa providers. The study will investigate how these patients decide which type of health care practitioner to see (the GP or the rongoa provider) and what information they communicate between their different providers.
