code of
conduct

Fourteen National Boards regulate registered health practitioners in Australia.

These boards are responsible for registering practitioners and students (except for in psychology, which has provisional psychologists), setting the standards that practitioners must meet, and managing complaints and concerns (notifications) about the health, conduct or performance of practitioners.

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) works in partnership with the National Boards to implement the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme, under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory (the National Law).

The core role of the National Boards and AHPRA is to protect the public. This Code of Conduct for chiropractors has been developed by the Chiropractic Board of Australia under section 39 of the National Law.
