Mauri mate is the Māori Palliative Care Framework for hospices.
Ko tēnei te ara kei runga
Ko te ara o tēnei Tipua
Ko te ara o tēnei Ariki
Ko te ara o tēnei Mātua-a-iwi
Ko te ara o Ranginui e tu nei,
O Papatūānuku e takoto nei
Kia rarau iho ra ngā tapuwae o Tāne
Ko tēnei te pō, nau mai te ao
Tihei mauri ora

A Māori palliative care framework for hospices
Mauri mate is a framework with palliative care guidelines for hospices in New Zealand, aiming to provide adult Māori with good palliative care.
The 3 main aims of the framework include:
- good (quality) care in the lead-up to the end-of-life
- good comfort (compassionate) care at the end-of-life
- helpful whānau support during and after the illness, and the end-of-life (including spiritual care and grief support).
The framework is also applicable to primary care, aged residential care, hospital teams and whānau care.
You can find the main framework along with a roadmap and a literature review report below.
