Release of Chaperone Review Report

13 April 2017

The Medical Board of Australia (MBA) and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) recently commissioned an independent review into the use of chaperones to protect patients in Australia. The purpose of the review was to consider whether, and if so in what circumstances, it is appropriate to impose a chaperone condition on the registration of a health practitioner to protect patients while allegations of sexual misconduct are investigated, and to recommend whether changes to regulatory practice, and the National Law, are needed to better protect patients and the public. The independent review report is now publicly available.
