Primary Maternity Services Notice 2021 & Maternity Data Standards/New Zealand Perinatal Spine
The Ministry of Health (The Ministry) is hosting a series of stakeholder information sessions across Aotearoa New Zealand.
These sessions will give people working in the maternity sector the opportunity to find out about the changes to the Primary Maternity Services Notice 2021, to learn about the Health Information Standards Organisation (HISO) Maternity Care Summary Standard and the New Zealand Perinatal Spine projects.
These sessions will provide midwives, GPs, obstetricians and other stakeholders with relevant practical information and guidance on how the upcoming changes to the Primary Maternity Services Notice 2021 will affect them, including what services they will be able to claim for, and how to claim for them.
Attendees will also be updated on important changes to the HISO Maternity Care Summary Standard which are helping to standardise the collection of maternity clinical information with the aim of improving maternity care in New Zealand. The HISO Maternity Care Summary Standard is also an enabler for other primary or secondary compliant solutions to integrate maternity information nationally to the Perinatal Spine.
Primary Maternity Services Notice
The Ministry of Health undertook a public consultation on proposed changes to the existing Primary Maternity Services Notice last year from September to November.
Implementing the Budget 2020 allocation of $85 million (over four years) requires amendments to the Primary Maternity Services Notice in order to deliver this funding for additional primary maternity care to women with complex needs, and to women living in rural areas.
Stakeholder feedback was crucial to this review process and we received 944 individual submissions during the consultation process. The insights arising from this consultation are incredibly valuable and we have carefully considered all feedback as we finalised the changes to the Primary Maternity Service Notice.
The amended Primary Maternity Services Notice 2021 will be gazetted in June, with the changes coming into effect later this year.
Members of the Ministry’s Maternity Team will give a presentation and answer questions about what these changes mean for you. Details on the information sessions is below.
Health Information Standards Organisation (HISO 10050.2:2020) Maternity Care Summary Standard & New Zealand Perinatal Spine
To provide high-quality maternity care in New Zealand, we need to underpin midwifery and medical practice with information that supports the care of women, babies, their families and whānau; continuity of care; best practice; and analytics.
The HISO Maternity Care Summary Standard ensures that information related to maternity care is consistently recorded and contributes to high-quality care of women and babies. The dataset can be shared to support continuity of care between providers and communication with whānau and family. It will also offer opportunities for data analysis and improvement of service design.
Following a consultation process last year, the latest standards are available on the Ministry’s website and will be finalised later this year.
The Perinatal Spine is a database (based on the standard) for storing and exchanging national maternity data in real-time. The purpose of the Perinatal Spine is to store all encounters and events relating to a woman's pregnancy, wherever they occur in the country, in a single, shared record.
A representative of the Ministry’s Data and Digital team will give an update on what the latest changes to HISO mean for the sector, and guidance on how these standards can be incorporated into clinical care.
Stakeholder Information Sessions
Members of the Ministry’s Maternity and Data & Digital teams will be visiting main locations across the country from Invercargill to Whangarei, starting at the end of June 2021.
The following dates and locations have already been confirmed, with additional venues and dates to be announced soon. Expect to hear from the Ministry by the end of June with the full list of dates, times, and locations. You are advised to allow between 4 and 5 hours for the session.

Please find below information on our upcoming 4-Day Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) Level 1 workshop being hosted in New Plymouth during August with Hannah Sun-Reid.
DDP was developed by US Psychologist Dr Dan Hughes and is focused on working with children (and their carers) who have experienced past developmental trauma and have associated attachment difficulties. This popular introductory course will be relevant to professionals, therapists and carers who have experience in communicating with and working therapeutically with children, young people and their families.
This is the final DDP Level One that will be offered in New Zealand during 2021 and it is already over half full so we would certainly encourage you to register promptly as there is a ceiling on the number of places available.
Compass does offer payment plans on this workshop, feel free to contact us for more information.
Please read on for full details about this training....
Dyadic Developmental Practice Level One
A Four-Day Intensive
Presented by Hannah Sun-Reid via Interactive Livestream
Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) was created by US clinical Psychologist Dan Hughes as an intervention model for families with adopted or fostered children who had experienced neglect and abuse in their birth families & suffered from significant developmental trauma. DDP is based on and brings together attachment theory, what we understand about developmental trauma, the neurobiology of trauma, attachment and caregiving, intersubjectivity theory and child development. It focuses on facilitating the child’s readiness & ability to establish a secure attachment with their caregivers and is family-based. It is called Dyadic Developmental Practice to focus attention on the importance of reciprocity in parenting, caregiving and therapy, but also to draw attention to the fact that abuse, neglect and trauma can seriously impact on the child’s developmental age and stage.
It is an approach that:
By the end of this course participants will understand:
This training will be of interest to therapists and other professionals whose work involves supporting families, parents and caregivers (adoptive parents, foster parents, kinship carers or residential carers), whose children have experienced developmental trauma and show attachment and relationship difficulties with their caregivers. DDP principles and interventions will be presented via lecture format, formal discussion, case examples, videotape of therapy sessions, role-play, and hand-outs. This Level One (Introductory) 28-hour (4-day) intensive training course is a pre-requisite to becoming a certified DDP practitioner and is strictly limited to only 24 participants. We expect it will be fully subscribed and encourage you to register early to avoid disappointment.
Hannah Sun-Reid is a certified DDP practitioner, consultant and trainer. She is also certified or trained in Theraplay, Trauma Therapy, Sandtray Worldplay, EMDR and TIR. Hannah has more than 25 years experience working with children and families who experience life challenges including developmental and emotional difficulties, trauma and loss. Hannah provides supervision and consultation to therapists and organisations, and conducts workshops internationally. Hannah is also the author of children’s books and therapeutic games.

A new course from He Ako Hiringa aims to improve clinical outcomes for older Māori.
Suitable for all clinicians, Medicines and older Māori is a free course that comprises four short videos, a self-reflection guide, downloadable posters, and other relevant links and resources.
Compared to non-Māori, Māori older adults have significantly higher rates of conditions such as cardiovascular disease and gout and have reduced access to certain medicines. Older patients are also at increased risk of medicines-related harm, which is especially concerning for Māori, who experience polypharmacy at a younger age than New Zealand Europeans.
Medicines and older Māori was produced in conjunction with Joanna Hikaka, a pharmacist from Waitematā DHB, whose research as a PhD candidate formed the basis of this course. The development of Ms Hikaka’s research was made possible with funding from the Health Research Council of New Zealand.
For Ms Hikaka, the goal is that her research will help improve the statistics for older Māori. “I'm hoping this course helps to highlight the need for active and critical review of medicines for older Māori. This resource will help patients and providers to start conversations that lead to improvements in optimal medicines use, which will ultimately improve health outcomes and reduce the risk of harm.”
When it comes to communicating to older Māori patients, Ms Hikaka highlights the fact that they want to be involved in their health journey. “Māori don't want to be passive in this process. From those I have worked with, there is clear direction that older Māori want to be well informed, so that they can make decisions relating to medicines and their wellbeing in general.”
The four videos in this course cover:
As one kaumātua so aptly stated: “No te whitiwhiti kōrero i mohio ai – It is through shared conversation that I understand”.
Posters have been developed from these conversations with kaumātua. They are available to download in the course.
Medicines and older Māori is available at akohiringa.co.nz. It is endorsed by the College of Nurses Aotearoa (NZ) for 45 minutes of professional development, by RNZCGP for 0.75 CME credits, and may be used by pharmacists to assist in completing a written reflection for PCNZ annual recertification.
Medicines and older Māori will be promoted on He Ako Hiringa’s Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages on 20 and 24 May. Please feel free to like and share these posts.
