  • Influences in this Project Russell Butson – Otago - 2008
    • The Sector Background
    • Health Act 2003
  • Dental Environment In New Zealand the implementation of the Health Practitioners Competency ACT 2003, has resulted in the Dental Council of New Zealand (DCNZ) requiring dental practitioners to maintain a professional portfolio 1 as evidence of their competence and fitness before they are recertified to practise through the issue of the annual practising certificate (APC). 1-Policy on the Recertification of Dental Hygienists, Dental Auxiliaries and Orthodontic Auxiliaries under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance (HPCA) Act, 2003 Russell Butson – Otago - 2008
  • Aim – To create an ePortfolio environment The aim of this project is to explore the potential of professional portfolios to assist staff and students to manage and control their continuing professional development in a manner that allows them to make sense of and map out their academic and professional expectations and subsequent achievements. Russell Butson – Otago - 2008
  • Challenge – Promote Self Governance of the CPD However, as with any compulsory activity it is inevitable that these portfolios are likely to be regarded by practitioners as a regulatory requirement, considerably weakening any prospect they might have of supporting self-governing career development.
