Professional Development Recognition Programme (PDRP)

Evolution has an active PDRP programme with dedicated PDRP Co-ordinators. Their role involves providing guidance to our nurses, both registered and enrolled, to ensure their professional development and practice hours are met, as set out by the Nursing Council of New Zealand. They also support nurses with their portfolio’s and ensures their annual appraisals are completed.

Monthly PDRP education in-services are held, and topics covered include:

  • Nursing Council of New Zealand Competencies
  • The importance of having a current up-to-date portfolio
  • Tips on how to develop a portfolio and maintain it
  • The importance of continuing on-going education ensuring nursing practice is safe and evidence based.

Quality Awards

Every year we host our annual Quality Improvement Awards. The Awards celebrate quality and opens the ability to share learnings across our Group, and shines a light on the often-unseen aspects of healthcare services. Some of Evolution’s Quality Award Initiatives have gone on to be finalists in regional and national healthcare awards which demonstrates the high standard our people provide in their quality improvement initiatives.

Evolution Employee Recognition Programme

Across Evolution we recognise and reward our staff for the exceptional care provided. This ranges from our individual Evolution service recognition to more formal recognition and reward, and our Circle of Excellence Master Award.
