We are proud to be a resource for our research community. We can help you access funding, Tikanga Māori training and help you with research statistics.

Statistics Consultations

If you are considering research, our Research Office offers free one-on-one statistics consultations with a qualified statistician to support you throughout your project. Funding is provided for CCDHB staff doing a clinical audit and/or research project.

Consultations are held monthly, usually on a Friday from 10am-2pm, for 30 or 60 minutes, depending on your needs. You can book as many meetings as you need.

Some of the things we cover are:

  • Getting your design right and your project off to a good start
  • Help and advice as your project progresses
  • Assistance at the end when you have lots of great data to analyse and present

You must book in advance. Email  to reserve a time. Please fill in this form to give us some information about your project.

Available Grants and Funding Opportunities

The University of Otago maintains a robust list of various research funding opportunities. Visit their website to learn more.

Budget Advice

Advice can be provided by the Research office in collaboration with CCDHB finance department.

Tikanga Māori (Research) Training

We recommend that anyone undertaking clinical research in New Zealand receives Tikanga Māori (research) training. This teaches Tikanga Māori practices in a clinical setting and how that relates to culturally responsive research practice. The guidelines are underpinned by Māori values, protocols, concepts, views of health and Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

Register for this training on ConnectMe.

If you do not have access to ConnectMe, we recommend downloading the Tikanga Māori booklet.
