Professor Allan appointed to the Psychology Board of Australia

Tuesday, 01 December 2009


Professor Alfred Allan of the School of Psychology and Social Science has been appointed by the Australian Health Workforce Ministerial Council as a member of the inaugural Psychology Board of Australia under the Health Practitioner Regulation (Administrative Arrangements) National Law Act 2008. This is one of the ten national boards that have recently been created by the federal government for the new National Registration and Accreditation Scheme for the Health Professions. Other boards include the Medical Board and the Nursing and Midwifery Board. The various national boards will be responsible for regulating the respective professions,

including the assessment and registration of practitioners, the approval of accredited programs of study, and the investigation of complaints about registered health practitioners and students in the health profession from 1 July 2010. The national boards will be very influential and Professor Allan’s appointment is a major coup for Edith Cowan University and the Faculty of Computing, Health and Science. The appointment is recognition of Professor Allan’s expertise in the area of health ethics and law and his contribution to psychology in Australia.
