Review of interface between Ahpra and our office

In early 2019, our office and Ahpra jointly commissioned an independent review of the interface between our agencies. This followed a significant increase in the number of complaints to our office and steps Ahpra had taken to improve its complaint-handling processes.

Our office and Ahpra welcomed the recommendations made by Former Australian Aged Care Complaints Commissioner Rae Lamb in her review report. We are already working to implement the recommendations.
