OBA Pilots New Audit Approach

The National Boards and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) are developing a nationally-consistent approach to auditing health practitioners’ compliance with mandatory registration standards.

A random selection of optometrists took part in an audit pilot when they applied to renew registration for 2012/13.

The findings from the program run by AHPRA (which included the chiropractic and pharmacy professions) will be used to develop the framework for auditing all practitioners on an ongoing basis.
