In this webinar, we will explore the very important AHPRA requirement to mandatory report a health practitioner whose practice is a risk to the public .

Critically, your report should be free of bias or partiality. We will also look at some of the legal ramifications if you don't make a notification. Current and relevant case scenarios will be thoroughly analysed and discussed to highlight this very important notification requirement which is at the heart of patient safety.
