Information about this survey and its finding are available to NBPSA member who are logged in to this website.
The PRP Workgroup cut across the key practice areas in NB paediatrics and forced us to confront our own prejudices, strengths, weaknesses and whether we were optimising our own resilience or not.. The 2014 AGM overwhelmingly supported the formation of this group and the support of external expertise through Forrest James Consulting.
