South Island Guidelines Allied Health Professionals undertaking delegation to the Kaiāwhina Workforce

This guideline has been developed by the South Island Regional Directors of Allied Health. It outlines key principles and requirements to ensure that the delegation of clinical tasks from Allied Health Practitioners to the Kaiāwhina Workforce is founded within a robust clinical governance framework, and is applicable across settings of care.

The guideline is a reference document for local Organisations to support policies that may be subsequently developed.
