Comments: Preliminary work has started on the review of NZS 8158:2003. The purpose of the review is to closely align it with NZS 8134:2008 Health and Disability Services Standards (core document) and the current models of practice. The first meeting of the Committee was held on Wednesday 9 February 2011, and the Committee agreed to break into working groups to review the separate sections of the draft. Sections under review are: service user rights, organisational management, human resources, service delivery, and quality improvement. An update of their progress will be provided by working group leaders at the next scheduled meeting on 6 April 2011, along with their decisions and recommendations.
