Getting support early is important for any practitioner going through the notifications process.
The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) recognises that having a concern raised can be stressful, and are working to support practitioners and the public who engage with AHPRA as part of the notifications process.
AHPRA have developed ‘Let’s talk about it’; a series of resources and videos to help health practitioners better understand the notification process, including what happens when concerns are raised with AHPRA.
Click here to learn about common questions practitioners have when a concern has been raised about them, and here to hear about a practitioner’s first-hand experience of what it was like to be the subject of a notification.
