As part of the recommendations of the Strengthening Medicare Taskforce, the Australian Government has announced a scope of practice review for the primary health care workforce, to assist health practitioners, including audiologists, to work to the full extent of their skills and training. The Government’s announcement can be viewed here.
Audiology Australia invites all members to provide initial feedback and comments on the barriers and enablers that are faced by primary health care workers in relation to working to the top of their scope.
Comments, feedback and questions can be provided to AudA Policy Officer Feiya Zhang. Further details on this Government consultation will be provided once it becomes available.
