Legal and CANN Requirements of Standing Orders
Standing Orders are written documents that allow non-doctor health professionals (e.g. nurses) to dispense medications without a prior doctor’s consultation, as long as certain standards are met.
Training for Nurses in Cosmetic Medicine
The CANN executive team, in conjunction with CANN members nationwide, has developed “best practice standards” for nurses working in cosmetic appearance medicine. The documentation is currently being finalised before forming the basis of professional, continuous training and education for cosmetic appearance nurses throughout NZ.
