Allied Health Professions Day

Published 14 October 2023, revised 15 October 2023

Happy Allied Health Professions Day! Today we celebrate the important work that AHPs do and the role they play in people’s health and wellbeing.

This year the main theme ‘Stronger together’, highlights the benefits of multidisciplinary team-based care. While it is well known that allied health professionals play a key role in the health and wellbeing of all Australians, health system reform is finally recognising the value, both economic and clinical, of multidisciplinary care.

It is vital that allied health professionals are recognised alongside their nursing and medical colleagues for their role in designing and implementing a comprehensive healthcare system, that truly wraps around the consumer.

AHPA is proud to represent the allied health sector, a key part of Australia’s healthcare system.
