Welcome

Mihi

Kei ngā mātanga, kei ngā tautōhito, kei ngā toputanga tapuhi kaitiakai o Aotearoa , ngā mihi o te rā nei ki a koutou, tēnā anō koutou katoa.

Ehara i te mea he aha e hoa mā, engari, he toro noa tēnei kia kī atu; e pāorooro tonu ana te whatumanawa i te whakamīharo o tā tātou piritahi tuatahi i te pō rā;  kei ngā āpiti, kei aku rangatira, tēnā koutou katoa!

To you the sophisticated, the skilled and experienced, to the nurses and members of NZNO I salute you all.

I do not write to you for naught, I write to you with purpose and say to you; The heart beat missteps at the thought of the first time we came together in collaboration.

To my friends, to my chiefs I acknowledge you all.

Maori greeting

Invitation from the Chairperson

Welcome to the 10th Council of International Neonatal Nurses Conference, Auckland, New Zealand, to be held May 5-8, 2019.

On behalf of the Organising Committee, I would like to extend to you our ‘māfana mai’, our warmest welcome. This prestigious international event is proudly hosted by the Neonatal Nurses College – Aotearoa (NNCA) in collaboration with New Zealand Nurses Organisation (NZNO) and The Council of Neonatal Nurses (COINN).

Over three-and-a-half-days, an exciting and thought provoking programme consisting of plenary and concurrent sessions and poster presentations will explore the theme Enriched Family – Enhanced Care.

Enriched Family – Enhanced Care (Whannau/Ko e Fakakoloa’o e Famili, share the care) will showcase the innovative neonatal care delivered by you and experienced by families every day around the globe.

The exhibit area will feature the latest products and services available, and the social component will allow you plenty of time to network with the wider NICU family - colleagues, friends and others working or studying in the field of Neonatal Nursing.

New Zealand in autumn is an inspiring and beautiful setting for our Conference. At this pleasant time of year, the weather is just right, whether your interests are to enjoy the amazing scenery and outdoor activities or simply to sit back and enjoy New Zealand’s diverse food, wine, shopping and entertainment.

Don’t miss your opportunity to join nursing colleagues from around the world to explore critical issues, emerging trends and innovations in neonatal nursing, to share global wisdom, to network and foster new partnerships, and to discover the wonders and beauty of New Zealand

Nau mai, haere mai, whakaeke mai – Welcome to Auckland, New Zealand.

Kind regards

Whanau

Maori are the indigenous, original inhabitants of New Zealand

COINN 2019, New Zealand offers an opportunity to celebrate and recognise the contribution of families in the care of preterm and sick babies in Neonatal Intensive Care Units globally, in a range of cultural contexts.

Around the world, the family unit is fundamental to the successful recovery of NICU babies, providing growth, strength, resilience and unity. In New Zealand, the original inhabitants of the land and indigenous people are called ‘Maori.’

Whakatauki

Maori proverb

Whakatauki

Tera tētahi whakatauki rongonui a te Maori e korerohia ana mo Te Pa Harakeke me te whakarite I te ahua o tera tipu ki te whanautanga ki te Ao. He kupu whakarite te Pa Harakeke mo te kotahitanga o nga whanau katoa, puta I te Ao. Tena koutou katoa.

Native to New Zealand and intimate to Maori culture, the flax plant was used by Maori as a material for weaving baskets, skirts and the Wahakura, a traditional Maori bassinet. The flax plant is commonly used as a metaphor to pull the Whanau/Family thread together in unity, around the world.
