The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency is the professional body that registers medical practitioners. For example a doctor or nurse cannot work in those professions without approval from the AHPRA.
AHPRA can suspend a medical practitioner for breaching the Practitioner’s Code of Conduct.
Recently AHPRA amended the code to include instructions to medical professionals that they must support the Government’s vaccine agenda in their words and actions, or their registration would be reviewed.
Senator Roberts asked AHPRA how many medical professionals they have cautioned for wrong speak, placing their registration at risk. The figure was 108.
Of those 16 were then suspended, and a further 11 were suspended after defending their patient’s right to informed consent.
Unless a medical professional can talk openly with their patient, explain the procedure, explain the risks and explain alternatives a patient cannot give informed consent.
AHPRA’s actions are in conflict with long-established legal principles surrounding patient care. One Nation will continue to pursue this matter.
