Hi and welcome to the ED website.

The ED website was developed to provide ED staff with quick and easy access to a wide range of material relevant to daily ED practice e.g.

  • Articles from journals, blogs and websites (see 'Daily Dose')
  • Medical calculators
  • Drug formularies
  • Guidelines and protocols
  • Links to common sites (e.g. Starship Hospital Guidelines)
  • Patient information handouts
  • Resuscitation guidelines 

We hope you enjoy the site and visit again soon,

Dr Tom Palfi (

ED website administrator


1. Links to some videos  will not work on Hauora Tairawhiti computers because of certain restrictions that are currently in place (e.g. videos on 'YouTube'). One way around this is to copy the link and access it from a non-Hauora Tairawhiti computer.

2. Some material is accessed through the Hauora Tairawhiti intranet and hence will only work on Hauora Tairawhiti computers.
