    Event description

    Empowering AHA Stakeholders: Empowerment, Recognition, Excellence

    AHAs hold the key to increasing access to allied health services, reducing waiting times, and bringing care close to those who need it. Yet, despite their potential, AHAs remain underemployed and underutilised. 

    The Allied Health Assistants' National Association (AHANA) is establishing an Industry Network to co-design a co-regulation proposal for the AHA workforce.  

    Join us for an enlightening webinar where we unveil our groundbreaking co-regulation framework, co-designed with industry leaders in the AHANA Industry Network. 

    Here's what's in store: 

    • Discover the benefits of AHANA and become part of the Industry Network to drive change. 
    • Gain insights into self-regulation for AHAs and its pivotal role in elevating the workforce. 
    • Explore the urgent need for government support through co-regulation initiatives and how this can enhance the delivery of allied health services.

      This webinar will include a presentation with Q&A and discussion.
