Background

To help promote safe and effective care the following National Boards share the Code of conduct (the Code) that sets out their expectations of professional behaviour and conduct for registered health practitioners.

The code is being updated to make sure it continues to reflect the standard of conduct and behaviour expected of registered health practitioners by the National Boards, and so that the public can better understand the expected conduct of practitioners. The revised code aims to be a relevant and useful resource for practitioners, while being more accessible to the public

Released: 11 May 2021
