A look behind the scenes at the National Boards

01 Jul 2020

The latest episode of the Taking care podcast looks at the role of the National Boards and their responsibility in ensuring practitioners deliver safe care.

Each of the 16 registered health professions are represented by a National Board. In this episode, host Tash Miles speaks with Jen Morris, who is on the Occupational Therapy Board of Australia, and Mark Marcenko, Chair of the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia.

The discussion explores the important balance of community and practitioner perspectives and how boards benefit by having members with varied knowledge, skills and expertise. It also explores the work of a board, from accreditation standards, codes of conduct and what happens when it receives a notification.
