Mandatory Registration and AHPRA
A Members’ update on Friday 30th October 2020 outlined the decisions of the Board with respect to mandatory registration plotting separate actions for Australia and New Zealand. A link to this October Members’ update is provided here.
The Terms of Reference for the Australian Working Group responsible for the development of the Australian Position Paper are here.
It was aimed to complete the Australian Position paper before the end of March 2021 but after consultation with the sonographers (who are just going through the process now in Australia) the date has been extended to 31 May 2021.
Additional fact finding and feasibility discussion of NZ registration options will be undertaken by the CEO and NZ Branch between now and March 2021, enabling a report to the Board by March 2021 and a decision made soon after. The CEO, Sharon Flynn, will develop a plan with the branch executive before the end of January 2021.
