Continuing Professional Development

  • Education for rural health professionals is delivered via our Rural Health Professional Development Service and is intended for nurses, GP's and other health professionals working in primary care, secondary care, residential care and community settings. 
  • The topics offered are presented by clinicians based in either Christchurch, Dunedin or Auckland. Presenters are suitably qualified nurses, doctors or other health professionals, usually currently practicing clinically. Their specialty areas include acute and chronic medicine, mental health, women's health and emergency care. Topics to be delivered are selected by the rural site, usually in consultation with their health professionals.
