Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Strategy Group

This group consists of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector leaders and representatives from accreditation entities, National Boards, AHPRA and the Chair of AHPRA’s Agency Management Committee.

Co-Chaired by Associate Professor Gregory Phillips, CEO of ABSTARR Consulting and Dr Joanna Flynn AM, Chair of the Medical Board of Australia, this group provides advice on how best to develop the National Scheme’s strategy, and define its role, in ensuring patient safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia’s health system. The group’s agreed vision is: Patient safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia’s health system is the norm, as defined by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Communiqués from the group’s meetings are published on the Communiqués page after each of its meetings.
