The Health Quality & Safety Commission Board is seeking up to four members for the Suicide Mortality Review Committee, which is being established for an 18-month period to undertake a feasibility trial of a suicide mortality review mechanism.
The Suicide Mortality Review Committee will be a mortality review committee established under Section 59E of the New Zealand Public Health and Disability Act 2000. The Committee will review and report on suicide deaths in three sub-groups: users of specialist mental health and addiction services, Māori youth (with a focus on the involvement of alcohol and drugs) and men aged 25–64.
Below you will find member selection criteria, an application for membership, and the Suicide Mortality Review Committee draft Terms of Reference.
Please feel free to distribute this to others who you think may be interested and who meet the selection criteria. Nominations close on Thursday, 6 March 2014 at 5pm.
