Cole’s Medical Practice in New Zealand – 2017 Edition Now Available

22 December 2017

The 2017 Edition of Cole's Medical Practice in New Zealand is now available. This resource provides practitioners in New Zealand with information on legal, regulatory and ethical issues, as well as guidelines around professional medical conduct and practice. The subject matter is varied covering everything from the New Zealand Medical Association Code of ethics to doctors’ health to cultural competence, cultural safety and health equity in medical practice in Aotearoa/New Zealand to working with interpreters.
Cole’s Medical Practice in New Zealand was first published in 1995 to give some practical guidelines around professional medical conduct and practice. The advice and guidance in this new edition provides updates and adds further context to the laws, regulations and formal statements building on the foundations set by previous editions. It aims to provide a reference to all doctors new to practice in New Zealand, as well as be a useful reference for practising doctors wanting to refresh and update their understanding of the practice of medicine in New Zealand.




In response to the recent communique Misuse of Subspecialist Titles, the College has received valuable feedback from our members.
