Teaching module changes and Cornerstone extension
I trust you’ve had a safe, enjoyable, and refreshing break. We have two important announcements to help you make a positive start to the New Year:
Cornerstone Teaching module revisions
Over the past two-three months we have received feedback that our Teaching module has unrealistic expectations that may jeopardise practices participating in our GP training programme. In refreshing our Quality programmes, it was never our intention to create more work or duplication for our teaching practices. In fact, quite the opposite, we want the programmes to be relevant, appropriate, and fit-for-purpose.
Therefore, in response to this feedback, we are revising the Teaching module to provide a more streamlined version that continues to provide an effective and safe training environment for College GP registrars.
The Teaching module, in its current form, has been put on ‘hold’ and will be relaunched on 1 March 2021 (an alert will be sent to you at that time).We are offering a three month extension until 1 June 2021 for all practices that require Teaching module accreditation for registrars starting in Attachment One this year.
If your expiry date for the Teaching module is 31 July 2021 it will stay the same.
The other good news is that we are providing all practices with an extension until 31 July 2021 for completing the Cornerstone core modules (Equity and CQI). The additional time is to recognise the significant extra burden the primary health sector experienced in 2020, as well as feedback from numerous practices seeking more time.
To recap those dates:
We trust this will alleviate some stress as you start the New Year. Our Quality team is here to help clarify any questions to assist your Cornerstone journey. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Quality team
The 5-day Child Protection Studies Programme is a Level 3 NZQA accredited course that provides students with a broad base of skills to act protectively when children have been abused, and to intervene early when a child is at risk.
The learning is supported by a number of guest speakers including MEDSAC, Lawyer for Child, Oranga Tamariki, NZ Police and a professional supervisor.

Given the limited numbers confirmation of attendees is important. Please email Maneesh.Singh@waikatodhb.health.nz
The Goodfellow Symposium, packed with 'Skills for Next Monday' is ready for you.
Good news! Our 2021 Symposium is going ahead – but with a twist – it’ll be virtual.
It’s the sensible thing to do with COVID likely to be around for a while yet, and our key concern in everybody’s safety.
You’ll still get a rich multi-stream two-day programme and be able to interact with our speakers. An added benefit is that you’ll have immediate access to all the talks and discussions, not just the one you're participating in: each session will be posted on our website as soon as it finishes.
Earlybird registration is open
Our close partners, MercyAscot, the College of GPs and our Urgent Care colleagues have helped create a strong programme, with the Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine adding a new dimension to the weekend. Check it all out on our website.
We look forward to welcoming you to the March 2021 Goodfellow Symposium.
