Lucy is a GP writer and medical educator. She has worked in a diverse range of practices from rural Central Otago to Porirua. She is a regular columnist for New Zealand Doctor magazine and is currently writing a book called Doctor, patient, story, and recording a series of reflections written during the pandemic called Waiting for Covid.
Lucy’s roles at the RNZCGP include creating communication skills resources and professional development for GP teachers. As such she is interested in how we incorporate cultural safety and the idea of a pro-equity practitioner into our consultations. She believes our current tauiwi consultation models need developing, to incorporate Māori models, unconscious bias and equity as well as an analysis of trust and power.
