Consumers and advocates: Help shape health regulation works in Australia!

Are you an active and engaged health consumer or advocate with lived experience who can represent the interests of the community?

  • Join a well-respected and effective advisory council that provides Ahpra and the National Boards with advice and connection with communities and health consumers
  • Help shape important standards regulating health practitioners, how Ahpra engages with consumers, and provide consumer perspectives and advice on relevant issues

The National Scheme has an important role in ensuring the development of a culturally safe and respectful health workforce that is responsive to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples health and contributes to the elimination of racism in the provision of health services

To achieve this, we have committed to increasing Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander leadership and voices on the Ahpra Board and warmly invite Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples to apply.

We are also committed to increasing diversity and social inclusion. Applications are strongly encouraged from young people, people with a disability, LGBTIQA+ and people from culturally diverse backgrounds.

To view the vacancy and submit an application, please visit the Committee member recruitment page.

If you are an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person and would like to talk about this opportunity further, please email [email protected] or call 07 3149 4789 and Patrick Murphy, Senior Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Engagement Officer.

For all other general enquiries, please email [email protected]

Applications close on Sunday 29 January 2023 at 11:55pm, Australian Eastern Standard Time.
