  • A Best Practice Guide for Continuous Improvement:

This Guide is a framework for use when developing or reviewing programmes set up to demonstrate the competence and performance of medical specialists. The Best Practice Guide was produced as a joint project Council of Medical Colleges (CMC) and Member Colleges, the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ), the Ministry of Health (MoH) and District Health Board (DHB) Chief Medical Officers.

The Best Practice Guide is accompanied by a stock take of definitions, resources, tools and additional information to assist all to implement a best practice guide for continuous practice improvement.

The Best Practice Guide and the stock take are web based resources to allow easy access both by senior doctors and the organisations they work with and any other groups developing or reviewing programmes set up to demonstrate the competence and performance of medical specialists.

The Best Practice Guide can be found here and the stock take here.
