SASS recommendations to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA)

31 August 2021

SASS recently prepared a range of recommendations for the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Authority (AHPRA) on how AHPRA may improve its response to complaints of sexual misconduct by medical practitioners. The focus of these recommendations is on how AHPRA can make its complaint processes, including investigative and tribunal processes, more trauma-informed and survivor-centred.

Whilst SASS was prompted to prepare this submission after recently supporting someone through AHPRA’s complaint process for sexual misconduct, the submission contains no identifying client details.
