Public consultation on the draft guideline for informing a National Board about where you practise

The Paramedicine Board of Australia has published a consultation paper on the draft guideline for informing a National Board about where you practise.

Released: 13 April 2018
Closes: 25 May 2018

Submissions received are available on the Past Consultations page of the AHPRA website.

Proposed registration standards

The Paramedicine Board of Australia released consultation papers seeking feedback from stakeholders on the proposed registration standards for:

  • English language skills
  • criminal history
  • professional indemnity insurance arrangements
  • continuing professional development (and supporting guidelines), and
  • recency of practice.

The Board also consulted on a registration standard regarding grandparenting for paramedics who don’t have an approved or accepted qualification. This standard will provide pathways for those practitioners to demonstrate that they are qualified for registration as a paramedic.

Released: 19 December 2017
Closed: 8 February 2018

A range of submissions were received from 41 different stakeholders, some of whom elected not to have their submissions published, some who elected to remain anonymous and others who agreed for their feedback to be published. All feedback eligible to be published is listed below.
