Although the training programme is designed to be flexible and completed in almost any order, there are early requirements which must be completed:

On commencing the training programme:

  • Meet your supervisor, ask them to complete the supervisor agreement form and send it to the Training Programme Coordinator (alex@rnzcuc.org.nz).
  • Inform the Medical Council that you have commenced training in urgent care using this form.
  • Join a peer group and inform the TPC.
  • Finalise your programme completion plan with your supervisor, and send the plan to the TPC.
  • Pay your membership invoice (and other invoices if not HWNZ funded).

Within one month of starting the programme:

  • Access the urgent care course online and familiarise yourself with the material (you should have received login details and course code from the Goodfellow Unit).
  • If you have not received your books, contact the TPC.
  • Access ePortfolio to familiarise yourself with the interface (you should have received login details from the College Administrator).
  • Access ECGWeekly to familiarise yourself with the material (you should have received login details from ECGWeekly).

Within three months:

  • Complete and send in your Clinical Notes Audit (CNA) for assessment.

Within 12 months:

  • Complete and send in your Patient Satisfaction Survey (PSS), if not previously granted CPLE for this.
  • Complete your ACLS/resuscitation course, if not previously granted CPLE for this.
  • Have completed supervision, CPD, clinical hours requirements as per the training programme requirements and loaded the information to ePortfolio.

The above are items that MUST be completed – it is highly likely that you will have done much more (i.e. attended several courses, completed case studies, etc).
