14 May 2021

The leading body for obstetrics and gynaecology and women’s health in New Zealand has welcomed the release of the Cultural safety within vocational medical training report.

The report was released by the Council of Medical Colleges in New Zealand (CMC).

Chair of the He Hono Wāhine, a subcommittee of the Te Kāhui Oranga ō Nuku of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG), Dr Leigh Duncan said: “RANZCOG has made some significant progress in the area of cultural safety and cultural competence but it is vital that we continue to do more to ensure that we’re supporting and growing Māori O&G specialists, that we’re increasing the cultural safety and competence of the entire O&G workforce, and improving the experience and outcomes of wāhine and whanau.”
