The RNZCGP is the professional body that provides training and ongoing professional development for general practitioners and rural hospital generalists, and sets standards for general practice.
The Foundation Standard represents what is considered to be the minimum legal, professional, and regulatory requirements for general practice.
Practices with up-to-date accreditation against the CORNERSTONE® Aiming for Excellence standard, meet the Foundation Standard.
The Foundation Standard is in the PHO Services Agreement and is included as the entry level criterion for general practices in the Ministry of Health’s Integrated Performance Incentive Framework (IPIF).
Issue three of the Policy Brief considers factors influencing the overuse and inappropriate use of antibiotics in primary care, and ways to address antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and avoiding entering a post-antibiotic era.
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.
