140164 - AHPRA unplugged - what they do and why
- : Online
A webinar to all MIPS members on their regulator AHPRA. MIPS will endeavour to get behind the real story of what AHPRA is all about.
We all know AHPRA is the regulator of registered health professionals in Australia. But exactly what are they trying to achieve when they receive and consider a notification about you? What is the process if you are to be investigated? What are your obligations and what rights do you have? The focus will be on the medical boards' investigative powers when notifications (voluntary and mandatory) are made about you, the process, timelines and crux of the matter – what is considered when assessing if the public is at risk. MIPS will remind you about your policy notification requirements and how we can assist and advise you in relation to an AHPRA notification at this often difficult time
The 2016/17 AHPRA annual report showed an increase in notifications from medical practitioners which included GPs. MIPS own experience reveals a similar trend. There is increasing consumer sentiment as shown in complaint surveys in patients lodging complaints and notification to GPs.Learning outcomes
