The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) Board provides governance and oversight to Ahpra. Ahpra works in partnership with the 15 National Boards to help protect the public by regulating Australia's registered health practitioners and setting standards and policies that all registered health practitioners must meet.

Applications are now sought for appointment to the Ahpra Board from members of the community. If you have a passion for safety and quality, and have expertise in health, education, business administration or regulation, then we want to hear from you.

The National Scheme has an important role in ensuring the development of a culturally safe and respectful health workforce that is responsive to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples health and contributes to the elimination of racism in the provision of health services.

To achieve this, we have committed to increasing Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander leadership and voices in the National Scheme and warmly invite Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples to apply.
