Call for applications for appointment to the Policy, Planning and Communications Committee

The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme regulates more than 709,000 registered health practitioners and over 160,000 registered students across 16 health professions.  It also accredits over 740 approved programs of study delivered by education providers.

The Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (the Board) is calling for applications from registered Chinese Medicine practitioners for appointment to the Policy Planning and Communications Committee (the Committee) to fill one non-board practitioner member vacancy.

The Committee has been established to consider and advise the Board on any emerging issues that may have strategic or policy implications as well as prepare and draft codes and guidelines for Board consideration and stakeholder consultation. As such the Committee is not a decision-making body.

Other functions of the Committee are to:

  • advise the Board on matters pertaining to professional standards, codes and guidelines to be developed or adopted by the Board, seeking to achieve consistency with those of the other regulated health professions, whilst noting the individual characteristics of Chinese medicine
  • assist the Board to manage and review the Board’s regulatory work plan and risk management plan
  • advise the Board and participate in policy implementation and evaluation as required
  • assist the Board in developing and maintaining relevant international liaisons
  • advise on short and long-term priorities within the communication strategy, and any necessary shifts in focus as the national scheme progresses and issues emerge
  • oversee the development of communication materials
  • identify opportunities for new or enhanced practitioner and/or stakeholder engagement
  • undertake other tasks as requested by the Board, and
  • report at least quarterly to the Board on matters falling within these terms of reference (TOR).

Applicants must be registered to practise acupuncture and either Chinese herbal medicine practice or dispensing.

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. The appointment is for a two-year term and is expected to commence in July 2019.

More information about the roles, eligibility requirements and the application process can be found in the attached Terms of Reference and Information Guide.
