How you can help (again.)

It hardly seems like eight months ago most of you signed an online petition, and as a result of all your signatures and the concerted efforts of many, we were promised an independent clinical review of the New Treatment Pathway for Sensitive Claims.

Well the day has finally arrived, and the Independent Review Panel has put the open sign up on their front door, and opened shop. And I thought I might make it easy for the New Zealand public to make submissions. Simply chose your preferred difficulty level (Easy, Medium, Hard and “Snail Mail”) from below and follow the simple steps.

Easy

1. Click on this link. This will open a word document, with a completed submission.
2. Customise the first sentence by deleting the options that don’t apply [Clinician/ client/ concerned member of the public etc.]
3. (Optional.) Review content.
4.Copy this submission to an email, address to: ClinicalPathwayReviewSubmissions@researchnz.com and send email.
5. Circulate this Blog address to all your friends and family and ask them to also make a submission. Numbers are power.

Medium

2. Customise the first sentence by deleting the options that don’t apply [Clinician/ client/ concerned member of the public etc.]
3. Edit content to reflect your personal situation and beliefs. If you are a client or clinician effected by the changes to the New Clinical Pathway, describe how you have been effected and how you feel about it.
4. Copy this submission to an email, address to: ClinicalPathwayReviewSubmissions@researchnz.com and send email.
