Developed by the Ministry of Health in 2008 and refreshed by Te Pou following sector consultation in 2018 Let's get real is a framework that can be used by all health care services, regardless of context, organisation, roles, or professions.

Every interaction in health education and training presents opportunities to develop and enhance health workers' understanding and application of the Let's get real values, attitudes and seven Real Skills.
