On 23 October 2019 the Health Legislation Amendment and Repeal Act came into effect. Here’s what Victorian Health Service Providers need to know about the new and upcoming changes
The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2018 (SA) has repealed now outdated whistleblowers legislation to implement new protections for persons making public interest disclosures.
New laws in WA have made immunisation a condition of enrolment in childcare services, community kindergartens and schools.
The Working With Children scheme in QLD has been amended to clarify certain terminology, streamline existing processes and to bolster protective measures in relation to children.
In anticipation of the NDIS rollout in South Australia, changes have been made to the relevant working with children and disability worker laws to align the requirements with NDIS standards.
As Victoria prepares to transition to the NDIS, several amendments have been made to the Disability Act 2006 (Vic) to reflect NDIS standards, in relation to restrictive practices, information systems and community visitors.
Victorian nurse and midwife to patient ratios have been updated to reflect changes in medical tech, patient complexity, best practice and community expectations.
