Call for applications for appointment to the Scheduled Medicines Expert Committee of Ahpra
The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) regulates more than 850,000 registered health practitioners and over 184,000 registered students across 16 health professions. The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) and 15 health profession boards (National Boards) work together to deliver the National Scheme.
Ahpra is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced persons to fill four vacancies on the Scheduled Medicines Expert Committee (the Expert Committee).
The role of the Expert Committee is to advise National Boards on:
- the use of scheduled medicines generally, and
- matters relevant to a National Board’s proposal, including:
- the public health need, if any, addressed by the proposal
- the scheduled medicines or classes of scheduled medicines that are suitable for the class of health practitioner to administer, supply or prescribe
- the training and continuing competence requirements to support safe and effective use of scheduled medicines by the class of health practitioner, and
- the guidelines and other system supports required to ensure safe and effective use of scheduled medicines by the class of health practitioner.
Further information on the role of the Expert Committee and endorsement for scheduled medicines is available on the Ahpra website.
