  • Providing Post-Discharge Support in an Outpatient Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Context: A Feasibility Study

    Pulford, Justin; Black, Stella; Wheeler, Amanda; Sheridan, Jane; Adams, Peter (2007)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    This project examined whether the provision of post-discharge support was acceptable to, and theoretically possible in, the New Zealand outpatient alcohol and other drug treatment sector. The research team explored stakeholder interest in the concept of post-discharge support; elicited stakeholder response to a range of possible post-discharge support models; afforded stakeholders an opportunity to identify alternative models of post-discharge support; and made recommendations as to which models of post-discharge support would be best suited to a pilot in the New Zealand context. It was anticipated that the project findings could potentially inform a pilot study of post-discharge support in practice.

  • Systematic lithostratigraphy of the Neogene succession exposed in central parts of Hawke’s Bay Basin, eastern North Island, New Zealand

    Bland, Kyle J.; Kamp, Peter J.J.; Nelson, Campbell S. (2007)

    Report
    University of Waikato

    This report presents a systematic lithostratigraphy for the Neogene (Miocene–Recent) sedimentary succession in central parts of Hawke’s Bay Basin in eastern North Island, New Zealand. It has been built up chiefly from strata exposed in outcrop, but petroleum exploration drill hole data have also been incorporated to produce this stratigraphic synthesis. Most of the strata exposed in this part of the basin are of Late Miocene (Tongaporutuan, local New Zealand Stage) to Recent age, and the majority of this report focuses on these starta, with brief description of Middle and Early Miocene formations. A companion PR report (Kamp et al. 2007) contains stratigraphic columns for sections through the Neogene succession described in this report.

  • Stratigraphic columns for the Neogene succession exposed in central parts of Hawke’s Bay Basin, eastern North Island, New Zealand

    Kamp, Peter J.J.; Bland, Kyle J.; Caron, Vincent; Graafhuis, Rhys B.; Baggs, Rachel A.; Dyer, Sarah D.J.; Boyle, Susan F.; Nelson, Campbell S. (2007)

    Report
    University of Waikato

    This report is a compilation of stratigraphic columns for geological sections and outcrops of Neogene sedimentary units in central parts of Hawke’s Bay Basin, eastern North Island, New Zealand. The columns have been prepared as part of a basin analysis investigation undertaken by the Sedimentary and Petroleum Geology Research Group in the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of Waikato and have been compiled into a common format from six recent MSc and PhD theses to make the information more readily available, principally to assist hydrocarbon exploration activities in the region. The columns represent a level of detail underpinning a rationalized lithostratigraphy of the Neogene basin fill. The systematic lithostratigraphic description of the basin fill is given in a companion report (Bland et al. 2007).

  • Assessment of the water quality of ten Waikato lakes based on zooplankton community composition. CBER Contract Report No. 60

    Duggan, Ian C. (2007-05)

    Report
    University of Waikato

    Zooplankton communities were documented from ten Waikato lakes from net haul samples collected in late 2006 and from species hatched from diapausing eggs in sediments collected in early 2007. Lake trophic state was inferred based on the rotifer assemblages observed, and these inferred values were compared with predetermined water quality gradients assessed based on a limited dataset by Environment Waikato.

  • Remote sensing of freshwater habitats for large rivers and lakes of the Waikato region using sub-pixel classification

    Ashraf, Muhammad Salman; Brabyn, Lars; Hicks, Brendan J. (2007-09)

    Report
    University of Waikato

    The overall goal of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of multi-sensor and multi-spectral remote sensing data for mapping different freshwater habitat zones of large rivers and lakes of the Waikato region. The review of satellite sensors available in NZ for aquatic mapping has identified three data options, which have been purchased for a case study area (Tongariro river delta). These data options are Landsat-5 (30m resolution), ALOS (10m and 2.5m) and QuickBird-2 (2.4m and 0.6m). There is no perfect option available as each option is a compromise between spatial and spectral resolution and cost.

  • Effective professional learning in physical activity

    Petrie, Kirsten Culhane; Jones, Alister; McKim, Anne M. (2007-03)

    Report
    University of Waikato

    This milestone report is the fourth and final for the research project ‘Evaluative research on the impact of effective professional learning in curricular and co-curricular physical activity in primary schools.’ The research was commissioned by the Ministry of Education and conducted from December 2005 to March 2007. The broader context of the research was the Physical Activity Initiative, a joint Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health, and Sport and Recreation New Zealand initiative, encompassing the provision for professional development of primary teachers in curricular and co-curricular physical activity. Schools involved in Model 2of the Physical Activity Initiative, were expected to engage in professional development delivered by School Support Services and Regional Sports Trusts during 2006. The specific purpose of the research was to explore the impacts of professional learning (Model 2), in physical activity, curricular and co-curricular, on primary school teachers, students, and wider school community. In addition, a literature review was developed to explore the national and international literature on physical activity in primary school. Furthermore, gaps in the literature and research evidence were identified, and suggestions were made to enhance the effectiveness of physical activity, curricular and co-curricular in primary school settings.

  • Living at the cutting edge: Women's experiences of protection orders. Volume 1: The women's stories

    Robertson, Neville; Busch, Ruth; D'Souza, Radha; Lam Sheung, Fiona; Anand, Reynu; Balzer, Roma; Simpson, Ariana; Paina, Dulcie (2007-08-01)

    Report
    University of Waikato

    This report examines the experiences of 43 Māori, Pakeha, Pasifika and other ethnic minority women who were victims of male partner violence, the impact of the violence on them and their children, and their experiences of the justice system when they reached out for protection. The objectives of the project were to: a.identify and describe the experiences of a sample of women in obtaining protection orders, the impact of protection orders and the response to breaches of protection orders; b.identify those aspects that are working well (that is, positive experiences of protection orders); and c.identify areas for improvement including barriers that prevent women from applying for and obtaining protection orders.

  • An external evaluation of Phat Pak process and structure: Volume 1: Evaluation report

    Masters-Awatere, Bridgette; Scanlen, Anna; Corry, Jenny; Ngata, Ronald; Ellis, Kenneth Desmond; Mueller, Sally; Little, Gaylene Robina; Philp, Roger; Soper, Brent (2007-12)

    Report
    University of Waikato

    An evaluation was conducted by the 510 Evaluation Research Group 2007 after receiving a request from the Phat Pak Governance Group (PPGG). The evaluation focused on four areas identified in the Phat Pak service specification plan attached to it’s Ministry of Health contract (Youth participation, Communication Strategies, Decision making Processes and Skills Development). Our intention of evaluating the Phat Pak Programme has been to, through feedback from a range of participants, gauge the extent that the programme objectives (such as those highlighted in the contract are being met. More specifically, the function of the evaluation has been to help identify specific areas that are working well and those areas that need further development. It is our intention that the evaluation will provide both short and long-term direction with added insight towards increasing participation and enhancing health outcomes for youth and the wider community of the Waikato region.
