The Ministry of Health is undertaking a strategic review of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003.
The review will assess how the operation of the Act can be improved, including how it continues to protect public safety in a changing health environment, and how it supports the development of New Zealand's health workforce now and in the future.
As part of this review, Health Workforce New Zealand will be undertaking a full public consultation, beginning on 31 August 2012.
Information on the venues for the public meetings starting around the country on 24th September can be found here.
