Local reports have today been released for each state and territory on Australia’s regulatory scheme for health practitioners, providing a unique insight on local outcomes within a national scheme.
National Boards, which regulate Australia’s 640,000 registered health practitioners in partnership with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), published the summaries to provide a local lens to Australia-wide data.
Using the data collected through the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme in the 2014/15 year, the summaries provide local data on registration types, notifications (complaints) and mandatory notifications for the regulated health professions, for each state and territory.
The summaries also provide national comparisons, to show how each state and territory compares with the national average. When possible, two years of data is included, to identify and track trends over time.
