Call for applications for appointment to the Paramedicine Accreditation Committee

20 Dec 2018

The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme regulates more than 709,000 registered health practitioners and over 150,000 registered students across 15 health professions. It also accredits over 740 approved programs of study delivered by over 330 education providers.

The Paramedicine Board of Australia (the Board) is calling for applications for appointment to the Paramedicine Accreditation Committee (the Committee).

The role of the Committee is to exercise accreditation functions under the National Law including:

  1. develop and review accreditation standards
  2. assess and accredit programs of study
  3. monitor approved programs of study and education providers to ensure they continue to meet accreditation standards
  4. advise the Board on issues in education and clinical training which may impact on paramedicine practice and approved paramedicine programs, and
  5. consider other matters as requested by the Board.

The Board is seeking applications from registered health practitioners, educationalists and accreditation experts with current or recent experience in:

  • Education and/or
  • Paramedicine practice and/or, and
  • Accreditation - preferably within the health sector.

The National Scheme has a commitment to increasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ leadership and voices. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are strongly encouraged to apply, as are people from rural or regional areas in Australia.

Applications will be assessed by a Selection Advisory Panel. Appointments are for up to three years, with eligibility for re-appointment, and are expected to commence early in 2019.
