Council of Medical Colleges in New Zealand

Covid 19 Information and Resources

Update on COVID-19 

Tēnā koutou katoa

The Council of Medical Colleges, has in the past month, held two meetings to discuss matters of clinical importance with regard to COVID-19 for Colleges, their fellows and trainees. Both the CMC Executive and Board meetings agreed that College members are playing a most important role in the response to this pandemic during this challenging time and that working collaboratively and supporting each other is the best way forward. We are especially mindful of the potential impact COVID-19 may have on Māori and are working on guidelines as well as being keen to hear of any ways we, as CMC, can help.

This slow moving crisis is a once in a lifetime opportunity, with its different collaboration and learning opportunities, to discuss ways forward across all Colleges, together. There has never been a more important time to Choose Wisely, apportion resources equitably and rationally, and to remember compassion and kindness to our patients, our colleagues, our communities and to ourselves.

CMC is here to support you. If you have any concerns please contact me.

Kia kaha
