Description
ESTABLISHMENT:
In March 2008 the Council of Australian Governments agreed to establish a single national registration and accreditation scheme for health practitioners. In November of that year Queensland ’s "Health Practitioner Regulation (Administrative
Arrangements) National Law Act 2008 " established a Ministerial Council, National Boards for ten of the health professions, and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) to support the operation of these Boards. The new national scheme and AHPRA became operational on 1 July 2010, each State having enacted enabling legislation.

FUNCTIONS:
AHPRA provides administrative support to ten National Boards, each one responsible for the regulation of a particular health profession. The primary role of the Boards is to protect the public by setting standards and policies which registered health practitioners are obliged to meet.

The Agency Management Committee oversees the work of AHPRA.

The ten National Boards supported by AHPRA are:
Chiropractic Board of Australia
Dental Board of Australia
Medical Board of Australia
Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia
Optometry Board of Australia
Osteopathy Board of Australia
Pharmacy Board of Australia
Physiotherapy Board of Australia
Podiatry Board of Australia
Psychology Board of Australia
