Results for Educational Outcomes
Building of an earlier Ako Aotearoa Regional Hub Project Fund project, (Luafutu-Simpson, P. et al., 2015), this collaborative project is focused on the implementation and monitoring of a Pasifika Success Toolkit in the Canterbury tertiary education organisations (Canterbury, Lincoln University and Ara Institute of Canterbury) . The longer view is to share the successful work and generalizable findings across, ideally, sub-sectors.
This multi-disciplinary project plans to identify educational outcomes that enhance student attributes and capabilities beyond those normally identified on academic transcripts and develop tools to observe, analyse and report them.
This project will explore the experiences of young people on the Youth Guarantee Fees-Free (YGFF) programmes, and then their journeys after their programme. This will provide information on the effectiveness of the YGFF intervention and allow young people to share their perspectives on the variety of pathways and transitions they experience. We intend to use this data to improve educational provision and outcomes for this group.

This project presents the results from a pilot of community-based Medicines and Health Literacy Clinics with final-year pharmacy students at the University of Otago.
The clinics are intended to not only provide an authentic learning experience for the students themselves, but also to create an opportunity for improving health literacy amongst the Otago population.
The clinics offer a patient-centred health information opportunity to improve health literacy in the community.
The HLMC (also known as a ‘Brown Bag Medication Review’) encourages patients to bring all of their medicines and supplements to a community setting without appointment or cost.
Typical discussions centre around answering patient concerns, verifying what is being taken, identifying medication interactions or errors and improving aspects of adherence.
This project evaluates a pilot intervention programme that aims to develop student numeracy and address the concern that many students enter university with low mathematics competency and experience difficulties with quantitative papers
