Concerns over New Zealand's health workforce sufficiency, distribution and sustainability continue. Proposed solutions tend to focus on supplying medical professionals to meet predicted numbers or to resolve distributional problems. This is despite quantitative forecasts being known to have poor reliability. A recent study on New Zealand's health workforce planning, which focused less on medical workforce numbers and more on the system's organisation and constituent interrelations, highlights the use of complementary methods to define the problems and design a range of policy responses...

AIM: To investigate junior doctors' knowledge of how to conduct the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA). METHODS: A two-part questionnaire was administered to junior doctors at teaching sessions across three New Zealand district health boards. Part 1 investigated prior experience and knowledge of the MoCA. Part 2 tested junior doctors' ability to identify errors in administration and how to score the test. Several weeks later a brief MoCA teaching session was given followed immediately by a repeat questionnaire...

AIMS: To describe the experiences of people living with multimorbidity in New Zealand. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional survey of adults with multimorbidity enrolled in two primary health organisations in New Zealand. Potential participants with multimorbidity were identified using retrospective hospital discharge data coded for long-term conditions. Sampling was stratified by ethnicity (Māori, Pacific and non-Māori/non-Pacific). Analysis was descriptive, with some responses compared to the general population estimates from the New Zealand Health Survey...

Gary McAuliffe, Marian Smith, Mike Brokenshire, Rose Forster, Murray Reid, Sally Roberts
AIMS: Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) has developed resistance to a wide range of antimicrobials. Population level data is essential to determine empiric treatment regimes. We sought to identify antimicrobial resistance patterns for NG in the Auckland region from 2008-2016, and review the utility of current methods of antimicrobial resistance testing. METHODS: Antimicrobial susceptibilities and demographic data from NG isolates derived from patients attending the Auckland Regional Sexual Health Service and Auckland City Hospital were analysed to determine resistance rates and trends over time...

Lucy Goodman, Lynsey Cree, D D Gareth Jones, Michael Legge, Andrew Shelling, Cynthia Farquhar
AIMS: Successive New Zealand Health Ministers have failed to approve guidelines for research using viable human embryos, which effectively places a blanket ban on all research that "uses" viable human embryos in this country. This includes research that aims to improve currently available reproductive technologies, illustrated by a failed application to ministerial ethics committees for a clinical research project investigating the efficacy of in vitro fertilisation procedures...

AIM: We undertook a national survey to provide current information on antimicrobial resistance among Shigella isolated in New Zealand. METHODS: Diagnostic laboratories are requested to refer all Shigella isolates to the Institute of Environmental Science and Research (ESR) for epidemiological typing as part of the national surveillance of shigellosis. The antimicrobial susceptibility of 263 non-duplicate Shigella isolates referred to ESR in 2015 and 2016 was tested...

Minah Ha, Anand Gangji
AIMS: This clinical audit aimed to review the Faster Cancer Tract pathway in Northland patients with gynaecological cancers to evaluate whether there has been an improvement since the previous audit in 2014-2015. METHODS: There were 46 patients who were discussed at the gynaecological oncology multidisciplinary meeting between January 2016 and December 2016 with confirmed gynaecological malignancy. Information regarding the time taken for various investigations, referrals, decisions and treatment to be completed for each patient was obtained from clinical records and compared against the Ministry of Health faster cancer treatment targets, standards of service provision and data from the previous audit...

AIMS: To investigate inclusion of sexuality and gender identity content, attitudes and barriers to inclusion of content in preclinical curricula of New Zealand medical schools from the perspective of key teaching staff. METHOD: Staff responsible for curriculum oversight at New Zealand's two medical schools were invited to complete a mixed-methods survey about sexuality and gender identity content in their modules. RESULTS: Of 24 respondents, the majority included very little content relating to sexuality or gender identity (33%) or none at all (54%)...

Anna Ranta, Suzanne Busch
AIM: In 2016, five Central New Zealand hospitals piloted a successful telestroke service that has since transitioned to 'business as usual'. Nelson Hospital elected to opt out of the service after completion of the pilot. This paper reports the impact of telestroke service discontinuation on service provision within a regional and national context. METHODS: This is a sequential comparison of three time periods: six months pre-telestroke, six months during telestroke and six months post-telestroke pilot...

Anna Ranta
AIMS: Stroke incidence and mortality are declining due to effective public health initatives and modern healthcare advances. However, due to population growth and ageing, the burden of stroke continues to rise worldwide. This paper aims to provide stroke volume projections for the next 1-2 decades and explores potential solutions to anticipated challenges. METHODS: Health administrative, where available epidemiological, and New Zealand Statistics data was used to model stroke service demand up to 2028...
