Review of Health Professional Guidelines
The Department of Human Services Health Professional Guidelines (HPGs) have been designed to assist health professionals to understand the types of documents that can be used to substantiate services if a health professional is asked to participate in a Medicare Compliance audit.
If you are approached by a trainee to participate in a Workplace Based Assessment you need to be approved by the trainee's Training Supervisor prior to undertaking the activity. For Diploma and Diploma Advanced trainees your qualifications must be equal to, or above, that of the trainee's current training program i.e., you must hold the Diploma or above to conduct the assessment for a candidate who is in the Diploma Training Program or hold the Diploma Advanced or above to conduct the assessment for a candidate who is in the Diploma Advanced Training Program. Only the designated Training Mentor can conduct Workplace Based Assessments for their Certificate of Women's Health trainees.
Training Supervisors will have a list of approved Assessors (and the qualification level at which they can conduct Workplace Based Assessments), which will be updated each calendar year.
