The School has arranged for an information session on applying for registration as a psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). AHPRA is the organisation responsible for the registration and accreditation of 10 health professions across Australia, including the Psychology Board of Australia. AHPRA's operations are governed by the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009, which came into effect on 1 July 2010. This law means that for the first time in Australia, 10 health professions are regulated by nationally consistent legislation. AHPRA supports the 10 National Boards that are responsible for regulating the 10 health professions. The primary role of the Boards is to protect the public and they set standards and policies that all registered health practitioners must meet.
Presenter: Helen Ross, Professional Advisor (Psychology), Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
