ACT Health follows a procedure to guide credentialing and scope of clinical practice for all allied health professionals. The procedure is professionally led and offers a standardised governance process for verifying and monitoring the qualifications, experience, professional standing and other relevant professional attributes of allied health professionals.
Allied health professionals need to complete their credentialing before starting clinical duties, and then once every year thereafter.
Information about annual re-credentialing for existing employees is provided by the Profession Lead for individual allied health professional groups. Information about credentialing for new employees is provided as part of the recruitment process. Credentialing forms for new allied health staff employed at ACT Health include:
Initial application for new allied health employees at ACT Health
Credentialing referee report
Guidance on getting a document certified true
