Committee: P8158
Project manager: Robyn Fitzgerald
Estimated Publication Date: March 2012
Comments: The third P8158 Committee meeting was held on 27 July 2011 by telephone conference. It has been agreed by the Committee to transfer verbatim from NZS 8134:2008 to NZS 8158 the sections on restraint minimisation and medication management. The purpose of this direct transfer is acknowledgement that these areas need to be consistent with NZS 8134 and any changes to these sections would be done when NZS 8134 is next reviewed. The final draft for NZS 8158 will be edited prior to public comment which is scheduled to begin on 22 August 2011.
