Ahpra launches new complaints checklist
Ahpra has published a new checklist for registered health practitioners, which aims to help them better address complaints when they are first raised by a patient or client.
The checklist is an outcome of a joint project between the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission), Ahpra and the 15 National Boards that regulate registered health practitioners.
The checklist is a resource to support practice and does not impose any additional obligations on practitioners. National Boards’ expectations about what to do when a practitioner receives a complaint from a patient or client is outlined in their respective codes of conduct or ethics.
