We are delighted to announce that Mr. Wayne Naylor has joined our esteemed council as the newest member. Mr. Naylor will be taking over the position previously held by Dr. Mandy Parris-Piper, who has decided to step down from her role due to personal commitments. We would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Parris-Piper for her invaluable contributions and dedication to our organisation during her time on the council and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
Mr Wayne Naylor is Chief Executive of Hospice New Zealand. He is a Registered Nurse and has spent most of his 30-year nursing career working in oncology, haematology and palliative care in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. He received his Diploma in Comprehensive Nursing from Otago Polytechnic (NZ) in 1992 and went on to complete a Bachelor of Science honours degree at The Royal Marsden Hospital in London, followed by post graduate qualifications in palliative care and statistics on his return to New Zealand.
Wayne’s main areas of interest are cancer and palliative care nursing and nursing education. He has a long-standing interest in wound management, particularly in cancer and palliative care patients and has presented and published widely on this subject.
Please join us in warmly welcoming Mr. Wayne Naylor to the council. We are confident that his appointment will bring renewed energy and enthusiasm to our organization, and we are eager to embark on this new chapter together.
Thank you once again to Dr. Mandy Parris-Piper for her remarkable service, and a warm welcome to Mr. Wayne Naylor. Together, we will continue to strive for excellence and make a lasting impact.
