Regulatory Advisor (Notifications)

Job no: 494151
Work type: Fixed Term Full Time
Location: Adelaide
Categories: Notifications

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) works in partnership with 15 National Boards to implement the national regulatory scheme for health professionals. The purpose of health practitioner regulation is to protect the public by ensuring that only health practitioners who have the skills, qualifications and knowledge to provide safe care are registered.

The Notifications Division within Ahpra is responsible for the assessment and management of concerns raised about registered health practitioners across 16 health professions.   A Regulatory Advisor - Notifications (Case Manager/Investigator) works as a member of a national team to assess and manage concerns raised by members of the public, government entities, other health practitioners and employers. 

It is a role that requires exceptional case management skills, a passion for working with the public and a drive to work collaboratively within a team-based  environment.

A notification is a complaint or concern regarding the health, conduct or performance of a health practitioner or student who is registered with a National Board.  The notification process is one of two major regulatory functions of the National Boards, the other being the registration of practitioners.  A notification might alert a National Board to concerns about public safety and may require Board action impacting upon the practitioner’s registration and scope of practice.  Effective and efficient management of notifications is important both to the public and the professions themselves.
