AUSTRALIAN Government Legislation – Codes of Conduct
The National Code of Conduct for Healthcare Workers sets out a range of minimum standards for health practitioners not regulated by AHPRA (the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency). This National Code, agreed to by the former Australian Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Health Council in April 2015, is enacted or intended to be by every Australian state and territory.
Whilst Kinesiology is a self-regulating profession via the AIK Ltd and AKA Inc (the two peak professional governing bodies). Kinesiologists have a choice if they become a member of these peak professional governing bodies. Our members have to comply with our Code of Ethics and Conduct, have Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance (not applicable for Students or Associate members), a current First Aid (not applicable for Associate members) and complete Continuous Professional Education (CPE) yearly. The AIK Ltd has a Code of Conduct Complaints Submission Form available, if required please email email@example.com.
Please see below the table with links to different states websites, for you to be informed on your rights when you see a Kinesiologist:
