Compliance

Compliance with immediate action conditions and restrictions

After the Heath Ombudsman has taken immediate action, health practitioners and students are monitored to ensure they comply with the conditions and restrictions placed on their practise.

Practitioners are provided with information at the commencement of monitoring that may include:

  • the methods and data used to monitor and assess their compliance
  • their reporting requirements
  • descriptions of what would constitute non-compliance and possible responses to non-compliance.

An immediate action will be monitored until the immediate registration action or interim prohibition order has been revoked by the Health Ombudsman or a determination has been made by the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Practitioners subject to an immediate action imposed by the Health Ombudsman may make a request for the Health Ombudsman to reconsider the action at any time under section 65 and/or section 76 of the Health Ombudsman Act 2013.

Compliance monitoring forms and information

Practitioners may need to complete a number of forms as part of the requirements of compliance monitoring. Some forms will be required at the commencement of monitoring. Other forms may be required to be completed and submitted on a regular basis.

Compliance monitoring forms can be found on the Office of the Health Ombudsman forms page.
