Abstract

The regulatory framework of health care professionals in Australia was, until 2010, a matter of individual state and territory discretion. In 2006, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) reached an agreement, and all jurisdictions began to move toward a national regulatory scheme (see ch 15 in White, McDonald, and Willmott 2010).Thisschemeisnowareality1 and some recent tribunal activity has provided valuable insight into the expectations of professional conduct (and misconduct)under the national scheme.These decisions are worth consideration, as they draw a distinction between unprofessional conduct and professional misconduct and provide guidance on the role of the professional boards and tribunals under the national scheme.
