Course Content

“On 1 March 2020, the requirements to make a mandatory notification changed. The changes aim to support health practitioners to seek help about their health without fearing a mandatory notification.

The Guidelines for mandatory notifications were reviewed as part of a scheduled review and because of changes to mandatory notification requirements that came into effect on 1 March 2020.

As a result of the review, separate guidelines have been developed for mandatory notifications about registered health practitioners and registered students. This is because of the limited circumstances when a mandatory notification must be made about a registered student.

The requirement to make a mandatory notification about a practitioner is different for different notifier groups. For that reason, the guidelines about practitioners have been structured according to notifier type (that is treating practitioner, non-treating practitioner, employer) so that relevant information for that notifier group is easier to find.”

The PowerPoint presentation has been supplied by AHPRA for use in educating the profession.
