In episode 6 of the NZPETeachercast we have Rachael Dixon joining us to talk health consultation. Despite being such a crucial part of our curriculum development, it's a process that seems to lack a lot of understanding as well as carry quite a few myths with it. Rachael addresses some of those myths and gives some great ideas about how we might prepare and plan for this process.
