Following consideration of recommendations from the final report of the Independent Review of the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme for health professionals (NRAS Review), the Australian Health Workforce Ministerial Council (AHWMC) requested that the Australian Health Ministers’ Advisory Council (AHMAC) commission an independent review of accreditation systems.
Professor Michael Woods has been appointed by AHMAC as the Independent Reviewer and will be supported by a small project team based in Melbourne. Professor Woods will liaise with the NRAS Review Implementation Governance Group (the Governance Group established to oversight implementation of recommendations from the NRAS Review) throughout the project.
