Abortion training survey (message on behalf of NZCSRH)

 

 

Tēnā koe,


As part of the Ministry of Health’s work to improve access to abortion in New Zealand, NZCSRH have been contracted to deliver training for future and current abortion providers, designed to be inclusive of Māori, Pacific and Disabled service users and aligned with culturally safe work practices.

Before starting work on developing this training, NZCSRH is seeking to understand what is required to ensure we achieve our goals and our training meets the needs of service users.

Your views are important to us and you have been invited to participate in a short online survey to help shape this work.   We would also ask that if you are aware of others that may have an interest in this area, you should forward the survey to them as well.  The greater the number of responses, the more likely we are to deliver what the sector needs.

Click here to access the survey  < https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HX5L8XB>

The survey will be open until 22 October and a summary of responses will form part of the feedback at an online hui for key stakeholders in mid-November.

Thank you for giving your time for this important work supporting how abortion training is delivered in the future.

Hei konā mai i roto i ngā mihi.   Nā mātou noa, nā NZCSRH.

HTN preeclampsia guideline for consultation

Evidence Statements

Seeking your feedback: A consultation paper proposing changes to the Guidelines for Consultation with Obstetric and Related Medical Services (the Referral Guidelines)

Kia ora koutou katoa

 

Firstly, I hope that this email finds you and your whānau safe and well.

 

Allen + Clarke has been contracted by the Ministry of Health to update the Guidelines for Consultation with Obstetric and Medical Services (the Referral Guidelines).

 

Please see attached for a consultation paper on the proposed updates to the Referral Guidelines.

 

Thank you to those of you who have previously provided comment and feedback on a survey on the Referral Guidelines undertaken by Allen + Clarke in April 2021. Your feedback was considered by the Maternity Guidelines Review Steering Group, and used to propose amendments to the Guidelines. Most of these amendments relate to the table of conditions and referral category. Some changes suggested by survey respondents were not recommended by the Maternity Guidelines Review Steering Group at this time. We have included a very brief summary in the consultation document to explain the reasons for this.

 

We look forward to hearing your views. Please send your comments to agribble@allenandclarke.co.nz on or before 29 October 2021.

 

Of course, we would welcome your assistance in circulating this consultation paper to your colleagues and others in your networks, and please do get in touch if you have any questions.

Draft Referral Guidelines Consultation

Consultation | Statement on - What to do when you have concerns about another doctor

Tēnā koutou

We are reviewing our statement on What to do when you have concerns about another doctor and would value your feedback.

This statement discusses concerns that could arise about another doctor for example, health, conduct and competence. It also discusses appropriate options for raising these concerns including when we as a regulator should be notified.

Our draft statement has more emphasis on patient safety and maintaining the public’s trust and confidence in the medical profession as grounds to act on concerns about another doctor.

You can access further information about the consultation and other related information at these links:


Your input is important to us. We invite you to respond to the questions in the consultation paper using the form provided.

 

We look forward to receiving your comments.
