Falls prevention

The Health Quality & Safety Commission is working with DHBs to highlight that falls prevention is everyone's business, falls hurt, and that the falls rates can be reduced by sharing best practice across NZ. http://www.hqsc.govt.nz/our-programmes/reducing-harm-from-falls/programme/ 

Find more information and resources about falls prevention and reducing harm from falls at CCDHB.

Professional supervision

Professional supervision is defined as regular, protected time for critical, in-depth reflection on practice which enables the supervisee to achieve, sustain and develop a high quality of practice. It is a means of focussed support and development and allows for the consideration of personal and contextual factors which may impact on professional practice, providing a pathway for managing these. To access a list of available supervisors please email professional.development@ccdhb.org.nz
