Ben-Grayweb.jpgHealth Lessons for a Diverse World

Health practitioners are expected to be culturally competent with the aim of improving on the unequal health outcomes endured by minority cultural groups such as Maori and Pacific people. The approaches required to achieve this could be applied to other areas of national life to maximise the benefits of our increasingly diverse population.

Dr Ben Gray is an Otago graduate from the first class at the Wellington Clinical School who joined the Primary Health Care & General Practice Department of the University of Otago, Wellington in 2006 as a senior lecturer in General Practice.

He has worked as a GP for the past 25 years, firstly at Waitara and more recently at Newtown Union Health Service (NUHS). While Waitara has a significant Maori population, NUHS has a diverse population with significant numbers of refugees from many parts of the world and the practice has developed significant strengths in long term condition management, cross cultural care and interprofessional practice.
