Please click here to download the New Wairarapa & Hutt Valley DHBs PDRP Handbook for 2017-2020

There have been a few changes to the National PDRP Framework and these are reflected in the new PDRP handbook above.

To download a poster detailing the major changes please click here.

Changes to Privacy requirements in PDRP Portfolios

The introduction of the new National Framework for PDRP brings with it new requirements for privacy and confidentiality in PDRP portfolios. There are now tighter rules about what information can and can’t be included in a portfolio and this includes both patient identifiable data and data that may identify colleagues or other health professionals. Click here to see an explanation of these requirements.

NZNO has also produced a very useful guideline regarding writing exemplars and case studies which will be useful in guiding nurses about the information they should and shouldn’t be putting into their self-assessments, reflections and other parts of the portfolio. Please click here to be taken to their site to see this document.
