Go Far with Peers
AHPAS members will have access to AHPAS community and discussion platform where healthcare professionals can openly discuss, network and collaborate with peers. This site will be moderated in accordance to the conduct as deemed appropriate by the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law. As an AHPAS member you have an opportunity to help create a platform for innovation, debriefing and collaboration.
We will be approaching the World Health Organisation (WHO) Collaborating Centre to nominate our organisation as being one of the Collaborating Centres for Health Workforce Regulation. The purpose of this proposed partnership with WHO is to ensure that by supporting and advocating the rights of our Healthcare Professionals, we will be able to aid in promoting best practice in health workforce regulation and promote access to quality healthcare by sound, healthy, well trained and supported Healthcare Professionals.
LEGAL EXPENSE INSURANCE &LEGAL ADVICE OFFER
RIGHT ADVICE WITH RIGHT PROTECTION
Each member will have the opportunity to receive formal Legal advice from an expert in the appropriate field to facilitate one-off advice regarding prospective of a potential case. In the legal world this would be deemed as an Initial Consultation.
After Initial Consultation is conducted, if members wish to apply for further aid in fund raising or possible sponsorship for cardinal cases or compassionate cases, executives of AHPAS will make discretionary decisions to dispense funding on a case by case basis. Our affiliate law firms apply heavy discounts and ethical billing for all AHPAS members and therefore through our guidance and connection members can be rest assured they are receiving the right advice.
We have now also launched AHPAS PROTECT, our new full package membership and legal indemnity insurance. This does not replace your obligation to have professional indemnity insurance, however it will be covering various aspects of healthcare practice usually not adequately covered in your conventional indemnity coverage.
