Consultation on common guidelines and policy
Released: 4 April 2013
Closes: 30 May 2013
The 14 National Boards in the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) are consulting on the following proposed guidelines:
- revisions to the Guidelines for advertising (common to all National Boards)
- a Social media policy (common to all National Boards), and
- revisions to the Guidelines for mandatory notifications (common to all National Boards).
Most Boards in the National Scheme are also consulting on a revised Code of conduct (either the code shared by most National Boards, or for some Boards a profession-specific code), however the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) is not taking part in that consultation. Instead, the NMBA will be consulting its codes of ethics and professional conduct as part of the implementation of the 2013 - 2015 NMBA strategic plan.
The consultation paper below includes the revised guidelines that all National Boards are consulting on.
Please provide feedback by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business on Thursday 30 May 2013.
