It is safe to say 2018 is going to be an exciting year for current and future paramedics. From late 2018 Paramedics must be registered with the Paramedicine Board of Australia (the Board) and meet the Board's registration standards in order to practise in Australia under AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency). The Board will also develop codes and guidelines to provide guidance to the profession.
What does this mean for future paramedics? Your registration will be recognised in all the states and territories of Australia and your name will be included on a public register of practitioners which is managed by AHPRA.
SPA will be outlining, explaining and answering any questions you may have about registration. Regular posts on our website and social media platforms will detail new information as it arises.
Attached is information about the registration process and to have your say on registration standards for paramedics.
But if you want to know even more, pencil this in to your diary or calendar.
AHPRA are hosting a webinar to help you find out everything you need to know about the registration standards. The webinar will explain what it means to be a registered paramedic under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law and answer any questions you have about the registration standards.
The webinar will be held on Tuesday 6 February 2018 from 6-7:30pm AEDT.
