This week the Australian Government, through the Health and Education portfolios, the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra), national boards and the Health Professions Accreditation Collaborative Forum (HPACF) released national principles for clinical education during COVID-19.

These national principles aim to guide the decisions of professions, accreditation authorities, education providers and health services in relation to student clinical education during the COVID-19 pandemic response.

A copy of the principles is available here.

The Australian Dental Council is continuing to work collaboratively with education providers to monitor the current situation and will provide further updates as more information becomes available. More information on our current response to COVID-19 in regards to program accreditation is available here.
