On 1 July 2010, the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009 (the National Law) took effect in Australia. The National Law replaced more than 90 prior Acts and created National Boards for ten professions replacing over 80 State and Territory Boards. Although the legislation is called “the National Law”, it is not federal legislation and each State and Territory will continue to deal with notifications and investigations within the respective jurisdiction. In some States and Territories, this includes involvement of a Health Complaints Commissioner or similar public official. This session will provide an overview of changes in the regulation of ten health professions in Australia, including the role of the Health Complaints Commissioners.
