Research and learning are core business at Te Whatu Ora - Waitematā and contribute to the achievement of our promise of 'best care for everyone'. Te Whatu Ora - Waitematā collaborates with tertiary education institutions, other Te Whatu Ora - Health NZ districts, NGOs, primary health care providers and industry partners to substantially strengthen and embed best-practice learning, research and the associated knowledge translation.
The term “research” in Te Whatu Ora - Waitematā refers to a wide umbrella of activity that includes interventional and observational clinical research, clinical audit, innovation, service improvement and other related activity that occurs locally and/or in collaboration with research and innovation partners.
