Allied Health Assistant Contextualised Learning Modules

The Allied Health Professions’ Office of Queensland have developed a series of contextualised learning modules designed to assist the rapid on-boarding of new allied health assistants in a number of clinical practice areas. These resources may be used by allied health assistants seeking recognition of prior learning toward the Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance from a Registered Training Organisation. They are also a useful tool to support continuing professional development for existing allied health assistants.
