Programmes for NZ Fellows and trainees

Excellence in Report Writing and Expert Witness Training workshops

An expert’s report is a vital element in litigation. An excellent report is also one of the most effective marketing tools that an expert will have in their career. The RANZCOG Excellence in Report Writing and Expert Witness Training workshops are facilitated by Claro Law and explore what is expected and required from an expert’s report.

The next Excellence in Report Writing and Expert Witness Training workshop is in December 2019 in Wellington.  Please register your interest at [email protected]    

Practice Visits

Te Kāhui Oranga ō Nuku (NZ Committee of RANZCOG) manages a practice visit programme unique to Aotearoa and RANZCOG.

Fellows of RANZCOG are able to receive a practice visit as part of their continuing professional development. The visits provide Fellows with a confidential review by two of their peers of various aspects of their practice. The practice visit process incorporates interviews with the multidisciplinary team the doctor works with, as well as a review of the clinical work load, case mix and record keeping. 

The aim of the practice visit programme is to provide feedback about the practice and facilitate quality improvements where necessary, in a collegial and supportive manner.

Practice visits are confidential and focus on improving the practice environment and risk mitigation to contribute to the delivery of safe, quality healthcare outcomes for patients, their families, health professionals and the broader community.

For further information please email Jude Kaveney – Coordinator, RANZCOG NZ Practice Visits or ph: +64 4 472 4608
