Call for applications – Scheduled Medicines Advisory Committee of the Optometry Board of Australia

10 Oct 2023

Applications are sought from registered medical practitioners with relevant expertise for appointment to the Scheduled Medicines Advisory Committee (the Committee) to fill one vacancy.

The role of the Committee is to advise the Optometry Board of Australia (the Board) on the following matters with respect to the administration or prescribing of scheduled medicines by optometrists for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes:

  • scheduled medicines or classes of medicines that are suitable for optometrists to administer, obtain, possess, prescribe, supply or use for the purposes of the practice of optometry
  • any guidelines or support materials that might be required to support safe, competent and effective prescribing or administration practice by optometrists, and
  • any other matters that the Board may refer from time to time.

The National Boards and Ahpra have an important role in ensuring the development of a culturally safe and respectful health workforce that is responsive to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples health and contributes to the elimination of racism in the provision of health services.

To achieve this, we have committed to increasing Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander leadership and voices on Boards and committees and warmly invite Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples to apply.

We are also committed to increasing diversity and social inclusion. Applications are strongly encouraged from people with a diverse background such as culturally diverse people, people with a disability, carers, people living in rural or regional areas of Australia and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning (LGBTIQA+) people.

If you are an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person and would like to discuss the opportunities, please contact Dr Stephen Corporal, Senior Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Engagement Officer, Statutory appointments via email to [email protected].

For all other general enquiries, please email [email protected]

Applications close on Sunday 26 November 2023, 11:55pm, Australian Eastern Standard Time.
