New guide to provide greater transparency in regulatory decision-making

02 Jul 2020

A new guide which aims to build a better understanding of how the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law* (National Law) is applied in the management of notifications is now available.

The Regulatory guide explains how the National Law may be applied by Ahpra and the National Boards in the management of notifications about a practitioner’s performance, conduct or health.

CEO Martin Fletcher said, ‘We developed the Regulatory guide because we know that transparency is critical for building trust and confidence in what we do.

‘We want practitioners, notifiers, and the public more broadly, to better understand how and why decisions are made,’ he said.

To help with accessibility, a shorter executive summary of the guide is also available.

The Regulatory guide and executive summary are available on the Corporate publications page on the Ahpra website. 

*Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory.
