Council has redesigned its website to make it more accessible, informative and intuitive, and updated its look with a brand refresh.
With an entirely new structure and design, users are guided to the information they seek and important notices will not be missed. In addition, all content has undergone a revamp towards plain English ensuring usability for all user groups.
On arrival at the homepage, registered practitioners, individuals who want to practise in New Zealand, as well as the public, patients and employers each have their own dedicated pathway where information has been tailored to suit their specific needs.
Practitioners will be pleased to learn that the dedicated practitioner pathway features specific information relevant to professions. This profession-specific area enables practitioners to easily connect with updates and practice information relevant to them, to ensure that they are fully cognisant of the professional expectations to maintain safe practice.
With improvements in the accessibility of pertinent information, it is anticipated that the website will become the first point of call for busy people who need prompt answers to their questions. This is important in assisting the Council to fulfil its role as a responsible authority promoting and protecting the public interest, by ensuring that oral health practitioners are safe and competent to practise in New Zealand.
