Since 1995, general practitioners have been required to undergo re-certification to maintain their vocational registration. Most do this through meeting requirements to become Fellows of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners and then participating in credit-based re-certification through continuing medication education (CME) courses.
Braemar is delighted to be able to offer quarterly CME courses for GPs. As Dr Graham Currie, Braemar Hospital’s GP liaison representative, states;
‘This is about meeting a need that needs to be met. It is giving GPs access to leading medical minds and specialist management techniques. It is about closing the gap between GPs and specialists, which is good for patients and good for hospitals.’
