Nau mai! Kia ora! A new diagnostic suite for mate wareware for use with Māori whānau has been launched. It’s called the MANA — the Māori Assessment of Neuropsychological Abilities suite of tools.
The MANA is not simply a cognitive screening measure but rather a whole toolkit for a comprehensive assessment that is sensitive to Māori cultural needs. It is a kaupapa Māori guide for how health professionals, whether they are Māori or tau iwi (non-Māori), can better engage in the process of assessment and support planning for a Māori person and their whānau who may be living with mate wareware.
