The College’s official stance on health issues; position statements provide advice for the government and health organisations.
About our position statements
College position statements are developed for issues of particular importance or in response to new developments. They are formed after reviewing recent literature, existing College documents and the position statements of other health organisations in New Zealand and overseas.
Our position statements are a collaborative effort; as well as internal peer review, we invite members to comment on draft statements before they are approved by the College Board. This process is thorough, and we need time and patience to form an official stance.
