Foundation Standard - information system roll out

Rollout of a key platform enabling practices and PHOs to engage with the Foundation Standard begins next month.

The QA2QI system (Quality Assurance to Quality Improvement) will support practices and PHOs as they undertake the assessment process.

We have created a preview of the key QA2QI screens practices and PHOs will use during the assessment process here.

The Foundation Standard represents what is considered to be the minimum legal, professional, and regulatory requirements for general practice.

Read more about the Foundation Standard and what PHOS and practices need to do here.

Will you be at our Conference for General Practice 2015?

Imagine: Inspire: Innovate - Is Your Finger on the Pulse of Primary Care Changes?

In 2015 we want to encourage our delegates to imagine how general practice will evolve; to use our conference as an opportunity to develop their own ideas with their peers and our speakers and presenters, and to be inspired by the innovations, and breakthroughs, being made by others.

31 July to 2 August 2015 at Claudelands Event Centre in Hamilton.

Register now to attend the Conference for General Practice 2015.


Thank you to everyone who attended the Conference for General Practice and the Quality Symposium this year.


Both events had a large number of attendees through the doors. The Air Force Museum was an amazing venue filled with character and history and it was great to be able to hold the Conference in Christchurch!
