New information about the performance of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and the National Boards in each state and territory has been released today to improve transparency and accountability.
“This is a first for us. It is an important step in providing greater access to comprehensive information and data about our performance.” said AHPRA CEO, Martin Fletcher.
“We want to help the community and the professions to better understand what we do and how we do it.” Mr Fletcher said. “We encourage feedback on our new reporting approach.”
The quarterly performance reports include data specific to each state and territory for the period October to December 2015 and covers AHPRA and the National Boards’ main areas of activity:
- managing applications for registration as a health practitioner
- managing notifications about the health, performance and conduct of registered health practitioners and offences against the National Law, and
- monitoring health practitioners and students with restrictions on their registration.
The reports are available on the AHPRA website.
