Our engagement activities

Engagement strategy

The National Scheme engagement strategy 2020-2025 outlines our goal of building trust and confidence of practitioners and the public. The strategy aims to build the trust and confidence of our key stakeholders in our work to protect public health and safety.

The strategy supports the vision, mission and strategic themes of our National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (NRAS) Strategy 2020-25. The strategy expands on the National Scheme strategic theme of ‘Trust and confidence’ and its purpose is to support Ahpra and the National Boards to deliver on the goals and objectives of the National Scheme strategy.

The engagement strategy:

  • outlines the broad principles to guide our strategic engagement
  • aims to ensure that our interactions with individuals and organisations are consistently respectful, person-centred and contribute towards our regulatory objectives, and
  • provides an overview of ways we will engage with our stakeholders over the next five years.

Joint project – Consumer health complaints

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission), the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) and the National Boards have been working on a joint project to explore whether there are opportunities to improve the consumer experience of making a health complaint in Australia.

The Commission and Ahpra initiated this work together because both agencies work across the health system using governance frameworks that support consultation with all jurisdictions.
