Ahpra Inquiry Final Report
Posted on 8 April 2022
The Senate Inquiry into Ahpra and its handling of notifications and complaints is now complete, and the final report has been published.
In AAPi’s submission to the Inquiry, our main concerns were regarding endorsement, the two tier system and the way complaints to Ahpra are handled and investigated. The notifications system puts a huge burden on psychologists, taking up excessive amounts of time and causing tremendous emotional distress.
AAPi attended the Senate hearing to again advocate for members and we are pleased to share that our concerns were echoed by the Senate committee.
The recommendations of note to AAPi members are:
We will continue to work towards a fairer system and will monitor the progress of Ahpra in adopting the Senate’s recommendations.
