Cole’s Guidelines on the Management of Clinical Investigations

Awanui Labs strongly endorses Cole’s Medical Practice in New Zealand (2021) as a framework for management of patient test results. In particular, we endorse the chapters “The purpose of medical records and notes,” “The management of clinical investigations” and “Choosing Wisely – more isn’t always better.”

We expect all referrers to have a comprehensive understanding of the principles discussed in these chapters and adhere to them carefully.

Cole’s entire text is available for free download from the Medical Council of New Zealand (including Kindle and iPad versions).
