Understanding Duty of Care - Consultation document

NZNO is committed to the representation of members and the promotion of nursing and midwifery. NZNO provides professional leadership and advice in a range of areas.

For nurses and midwives there is a close relationship between professional and legal obligations. The purpose of this fact sheet is to define duty of care and outline ‘duty of care’ obligations. This document is an update to the 2008 fact sheet on duty of care.

We are seeking your feedback on the fact sheet and invite you to please forward this to Jill Clendon by Friday April 1st at
