AHPRA Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency
Annual registration with AHPRA for health professionals requires individual participation in continuing professional development to meet requirements of each National Board. Points can be gained through PEPA placements and workshops with the number of points available varying depending upon the professional discipline. This is a self recording process and all responsibility to document and claim points falls on the registrant directly.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are viewing the PEPA website or other program materials are advised that this site may contain images and voices of people who have died. In some Indigenous communities naming of a deceased person and reference to them or seeing images of deceased persons in photographs, film and books or hearing them in recordings etc may cause sadness or distress and in some cases, offend against strongly held cultural prohibitions. If you become aware that an image or voice of a deceased person is being used by PEPA please contact us and we will endeavour to remove such images from our promotions.
