Appointment to new Quality Clinical Advisor position


The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners has today announced the appointment of Shelley Frost to the new position of Quality Clinical Advisor. The role will be part-time and will complement Shelley's continuing roles with General Practice New Zealand and other agencies.

The Chief Executive of the College, Helen Morgan-Banda, says she is delighted to be able to appoint somebody with Shelley's experience and credentials to the new position.

"With the advent of the Ministry of Health Integrated Performance Incentive Framework (IPIF), the Foundation Standard and the current review of Aiming for Excellence, the quality sphere within primary care is currently undergoing some exciting developments," she says.

Shelley brings to the role strong clinical experience and an in-depth knowledge of the role of quality in primary care. For the past 17 years she has been Director of Nursing for Pegasus Health in Christchurch.

She is currently Deputy Chair of the Health Quality and Safety Commission and a board member of the International Foundation for Integrated Care as well as being Chair and Executive Director (Nursing) at General Practice New Zealand.

The role will focus on:
Strengthening the College's role in providing and/or supporting the development of quality standards, tools and resources for general practice.
Developing and expanding strategic partnerships and alliances to advance quality initiatives in general practice and support the College's quality strategic goals.

"The Quality Clinical Advisor will be the professional lead for quality work done by the College and its members on the College's behalf and Shelley will take a leadership role in promoting quality general practice in New Zealand," Helen says.
