Credentialing Programme

It is the Bay of Plenty District Health Board's (BOPDHB) policy that all senior medical staff will, upon appointment and at regular intervals thereafter, have their clinical responsibilities clearly defined through a credentialing process.

The prime focus of credentialing is patient safety, providing protection for patients by ensuring that the medical staff treating them are practising within the scope of their training and within their level of competency.  It provides a structured, consistent, open and fair approach to the assessment of the training, experience and competency of medical staff with the process focussing on quality improvement rather than discipline.
