The IMAP® Model
The I-MAP model has been created to underpin the kaupapa focusing on whanau. In order to achieve this, the main resources of the organisation are grouped around whanau and the I-MAP program. The mix of clinical and non-clinical services are thus able to blend to create an environment for excellence in service delivery to whanau. The primary resource of the organisation is the people who work for and with the organisation. As such they are all a part of the I-MAP team and have a role in the delivery of the I-MAP service.
Elements in the IMAP (Management Action Plan) Approach
Individual - Empowerment of the client to achieve their goals in health and wellbeing
Interdisciplinary - internal support from clinicians, CSWs, social and mental health workers, kaumatua, and other services within Te Puna. Also external support from external agencies and community allied services
Integrated / Intersectorial - the organisation itself and the importance of strong business practices, policies and values-based external relationships focused on favourable outcomes for the individual/whanau.
The Harakeke IMAP management model is three dimensional.
Individual 'IMAP' Management Action Plan
Paramount is the Individual 'IMAP' Management Action Plan in which the whanau/client, with total support, is confident that s/he can map their way through complex issues. This is ideologically aligned with the weaver weaving the flax into the shape they want. In the Te Puna Hauora process the weaver is the whanau/client and Te Puna Hauora provides guidance on the weaving process. The third component is the organisation itself and is underpinned by the Integrated Management Action Plan emphasising strong business practices, policies and values based external relationships focussed on favourable outcomes for the individual/whanau.
Interdisciplinary 'I-MAP' Management Plan
The second is the Interdisciplinary Management Action Plan where the Community Support Worker, whose sole purpose is to mentor the whanau/client, internally has clinical support from Doctors, Nurses and Social Workers as well as the availability of all Te Puna Hauora services. External agencies and community allied services are included in case management and family group consultations facilitated by the Community Support Worker/Intersectorial and the whanau/client together.
Integrated 'IMAP' Management Action Plan
The third component is the organisation itself and is underpinned by the Integrated/Intersectorial Management Action Plan emphasising strong business practices, policies and values based external relationships focussed on favourable outcomes for the individual/whanau.
