A National Board code of conduct or code of ethics describes the professional behaviour and conduct expectations for registered health practitioners.
Each of the 15 National Boards have an approved code of conduct or code of ethics that applies to the registered health practitioners they regulate. These codes are an important part of the National Boards’ regulatory framework and help to keep the public safe by outlining the National Boards’ expectations of professional behaviour and conduct for registered health practitioners.
Registered health practitioners have a responsibility to be familiar with and apply their relevant code.
Twelve National Boards share a Code of conduct for the practitioners they regulate. To read the shared Code of conduct, see the link below.
The Medical, Nursing and Midwifery and Psychology Boards of Australia have profession specific codes of conduct or code of ethics in place for the practitioners they regulate. The links to these are below.
