Who is accountable for the actions of the allied health assistant?
Fora is accountable for the actions of our allied health assistants. External Allied Health Professionals are not accountable for the actions of our allied health assistants.
The only thing Allied Health Professionals need to consider when identifying tasks suitable for an allied health assistant is whether the task is suitable. You can find more information about how to determine whether a task is suitable in the Supervision and delegation framework for allied health assistants and the support workforce in disability (Pages 56 – 61)
Fora also recommends the AHP documents for their own records which tasks were identified for the allied health assistant.
