NZRDA has become increasingly concerned at the impact transition from TI to House Officer is having on some members. At one end of the spectrum, individuals find the transition so difficult they have to be withdrawn from work for a period and reintroduced in a more supportive and planned manner.   Members have also expressed concern that they “hung on in there” but that the experience was incredibly stressful and detrimental to both their own wellbeing and potentially that of their patients.
