    Throughout the year Shore Surgery Hospital is visited by trainee doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and physiotherapists. An essential part of their training is contact with patients, which occurs only under the direct supervision of senior staff or consultants. Such contact, obviously, requires the support and consent of the patients involved and this is very much appreciated by trainees and senior staff.

This role involves providing guidance to our nurses, both registered and enrolled, to ensure their professional development and practice hours are met, as set out by the Nursing Council of New Zealand. Our PDRP Coordinator also provides assistance to nurses with their portfolio’s and ensures their annual appraisals are completed.

    Monthly PDRP education inservices are held and topics covered include:
    – Nursing Council of New Zealand Competencies
    – The importance of having a current up-to-date portfolio
    – Tips on how to develop a portfolio and maintain it
    – The importance of continuing on-going education ensuring nursing practice is safe and evidence based.
