Supervision and delegation framework for allied health assistants
In 2010-11, the Department of Health (DoH) engaged Healthcare Management Advisors to develop the 'Supervision and delegation framework for allied health assistants' (the framework). The framework has been developed through research and broad stakeholder consultation and provides information and guidance to enhance the utilisation and development of the allied health assistant role (AHA) across health and community services throughout Victoria.
The framework incorporates the breadth of views and opinions of the varying stakeholders who took part in the consultation process from a variety of health care settings in rural and metropolitan Victoria.
The framework is available on the Vic Health Workforce website by clicking here.
DoH has also undertaken a number of activities to promote the uptake of the framework and is currently in the process of developing an additional web page which will provide AHA related information and resources, including the framework.
