The Paramedic Registration Project has moved into full swing with the appointment of a Principal Policy Advisor at the Department of Health and Human Development, and the initiation of consultation with key stakeholders, such as the College, to progress the inclusion of Paramedics in the National Registration Accreditation Scheme (National Scheme).
Before paramedics can be included in the National Scheme, work is needed to settle policy details and prepare legislative amendments to the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law.
Anticipated timeframes for the project are as follows:
- Policy details to be settled in 2016
- Legislation to be prepared and passed by participating jurisdictions by mid-2017
- National registration of paramedics to commence in the second half of 2018.
