This Qualification will further enable kaimahi who deliver Smoking Cessation services nationally. It recognises their skills in a professional environment and it also builds the confidence from Whanau who receive this service.
“The qualification will show that kaimahi have achieved a National Standard of Practise and therefore their clients will get a standard of care that has been immeasurable in the past. This will give us the confidence to showcase to other Health professionals that – hey we do know what we are talking about.”
Teina sees this new National Standard as a real benefit to smaller providers or new Kaimahi coming on board to get the traction they need in the community. Teina and her partner in crime Barbara Metzger have been doing this Mahi passionately and are both renowned locally and nationally for their efforts in helping Whanau quit smoking – True Blue Nga Kete Champions indeed!
