Joining the Programme
Ideally the decision to start on a quality programme is made jointly by staff and management.
The most important question is what does the organisation want to gain from a Quality Improvement Programme? Some possible gains might be:
- A chance to take a fresh look at your organisation and individual practice.
- An opportunity for an independent opinion on what you are doing and some ideas for new directions.
- Build teams and increase working together with a common vision.
- Add more of a community focus to your work.
- A chance to improve things you know need tackling.
- A way to validate your strengths.
- An opportunity to have organisation wide staff development.
- A means to increase your control over your day-to-day work.
- A means to assess effectiveness of services.
Te Wana staff are happy to visit, have informal or formal presentations/discussions for staff and/or governing bodies about Te Wana.

What’s involved on the day?
Internal Contact Training – This is about preparing your organisation for the self assessment, external review and the ongoing monitoring of quality improvement activity.
Peer Reviewer Training – Peer reviewer is about training people within your organisation or some external stakeholders who can participate in a Te Wana review. It includes orientation to the review process, gaining familiarity with the Te Wana standards and how a reviewer assesses an organisation against a particular standard.
Review Coordinator Training – Generally the Review Coordinator training is for those who have a working knowledge of Te Wana’s review process and have been on at least 3-4 reviews. However if you have what you think it takes to be a Review Coordinator please contact us as we are happy to discuss this further with you.
NOTE: All training sessions include detailed resources/handouts and an overview will be sent about what to expect from the day prior to your chosen workshop.
