Allied Health Professions Australia and its member associations support the implementation of a Quality and Safety Framework that protects people experiencing disability. Our submission to the Department of Social Services inquiry reflects our belief that it in implementing the Framework, it will be essential to strike a careful balance between safety and regulation and overly burdening providers, particularly smaller and part-time providers.
AHPA’s submission is based on close consultation with our member associations and endeavours to provide an allied health perspective on potential issues that may arise from the proposed rules.
