Australia has more than 90,000 allied health professionals, who work alongside doctors and nurses to provide optimum health care for all Australians.

Allied Health Assistants work under the direction of professional staff such as doctors, social workers, physiotherapists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, diversional therapists, home economists and nurses. They assist senior staff by visiting clients, preparing written and verbal reports, and helping with personal care that clients or carers may not be able to undertake.

Our ageing population and the increased focus on primary health care means that roles associated with allied health will continue to increase. This will potentially include multi-specialty practice or multidisciplinary teams operating within primary care involving allied health and medical practitioners, and increased establishment/uptake of roles and training for allied health assistants.
