Victoria's allied health assistant workforce help ensure services in health, disability, aged care, community and other sectors function efficiently.
Allied health assistants work with allied health practitioners.
They are trained to work within a particular scope of practice and undertake tasks that are delegated to them by allied health practitioners.
This allows allied health practitioners to focus their efforts where they are needed most.
Resources have been developed to assist organisations seeking to develop an allied health assistant workforce
