Waikato DHB Pushes for Partnership Across Disciplines

Waikato DHB Pushes for Partnership Across Disciplines

Nursing, midwifery and Allied Health graduates from across New Zealand started their professional careers with a huge welcome at Waikato District Health Board this morning

.
The event marked the first time that new graduates from different health disciplines had a welcome together under one roof. The integrated approach is part of a developing programme at Waikato DHB that aims to improve connectedness between various health disciplines.

The programme will allow new graduates to participate in joint education sessions and workshops during their first year of clinical practice.

The idea developed last year as occupational therapists graduates joined nurses in the Nursing Entry to Practice (NETP) programme. Feedback from the programme showed graduates from each discipline became closer throughout the year and gained a better understanding of one another’s professions.
