How Health Navigator NZ can help you
Studies show learning is enhanced when whānau are given quality written or online information to support their retention and understanding following a consultation or hospital admission. The Health Navigator NZ website is designed to make it easy for your clinical teams to give people relevant New Zealand information and self-care resources. 

You can print out topic sheets, share pages via email and social media or jot down topic suggestions on our wallet cards for whānau to look up online at home. We also have posters and rack cards that are ideal for waiting rooms. Order here

**Reminder: This clinical update is to give DHBs, PHOs and other key health groups an overview of what's happening in the Long-Term Conditions and Health Navigator space. We bring you news and links to relevant health promotion topics for the month. As always, we are keen to hear from you about ways we can support your region and population. Please email
