Te Pou has collaborated with the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners and Wellbeing Wellington to develop this toolkit to assist the conversations between a prescribing health professional and a person accessing their service about wellbeing and physical health. This includes specific implications of the medication(s) they are, or may be, prescribed and information on what could be involved in discontinuing the medication.
The toolkit comprises:
- a video of a person talking with their general practitioner (GP)
- resources for GPs and GP educators to use for education and workforce development.
