The Australian Association of Consultant Physicians (AACP)
Represents all consultant physicians and paediatricians to assure recognition of the value of quality consultant physician and paediatric practice in Australia.
The Australian Association of
Consultant Physicians was founded
The original charter sought to promote, maintain and improve the highest standards of patient care in the community, as well as to represent the professional interests of consultant physicians.
In 2005 the AACP embarked on a new program to promote the professional interests of the consultant physician and paediatrician workforce and to support them in delivering high quality care to their patients. This work is ongoing.
2015 MBS Review
The Medicare Benefits Schedule Review is the major policy issue facing the medical profession since its announcement in April 2015.
The MBS Review Taskforce is considering how the more than 5,700 items on the MBS can be aligned with contemporary clinical evidence and practice and improve health outcomes for patients.
The AACP is responding to and closely monitoring particular areas of concern.
