The establishment of a Clinical Advisory Panel will ensure that all aspects of RDNZ’s work is informed by contemporary evidence-based best clinical practice and whakaaro Māori that considers and protects the best interests of those we engage with.

The Panel will consist of between eight and twelve members (including the co-chairs) and include a cross representation of internationally respected and networked New Zealand rare disorders clinicians (including nurses, allied health professionals, and general and specialist medical practitioners), with at least two mātanga Māori clinicians with expertise in te ao Māori.

Learn more about the requirements and expectations for the Panel members in the Terms of Reference here.

We are currently welcoming expressions of interest. If you’re a clinician with rare disorders expertise and an understanding of how te Tiriti principles apply to professional practice we’d very much like to hear from you. Please express your interest by filling in this form.
