The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme Strategy 2011-2014 sets out our vision, mission and strategic priorities. This statement has been developed jointly by the National Boards and AHPRA.
- support the National Boards in their primary role of protecting the public
- manage the registration processes for health practitioners and students around Australia
- has offices in each State and Territory where the public can make notifications about a registered health practitioner or student
- on behalf of the Boards, manages investigations into the professional conduct, performance or health of registered health practitioners, except in NSW where this is undertaken by the Health Professional Councils Authority and the Health Care Complaints Commission
- publishes national registers of practitioners so important information about the registration of individual health practitioners is available to the public
works with the Health Complaints Commissions in each State and Territory to make sure the appropriate organisation investigates community concerns about individual, registered health practitioners
- supports the Boards in the development of registration standards, and codes and guidelines
- provides advice to the Ministerial Council about the administration of the national registration and accreditation scheme
