Chaperone Review Report now available

01 May 2017

The Medical Board of Australia (MBA) and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) commissioned an independent review into the use of chaperones to protect patients in Australia.

The purpose of the review was to consider whether it would be appropriate, and in what circumstances, to impose a chaperone condition upon practitioners while allegations of sexual misconduct were being investigated. It also served as an opportunity to recommend whether changes to regulatory practice and the National Law were necessary to better protect patients and the public.
The review was undertaken by Professor Ron Paterson, an international expert on patients’ rights, complaints, healthcare quality and the regulation of health professions.
The review was completed in February 2017 and the report is now publicly available on the National Health Practitioner Ombudsman and Privacy Commissioner website.
