Health industry resources - Associations

Health industry associations belong to two broad categories, professional associations and associations of industry segments or sub-sectors. Most of them operate as not-for-profit , for the benefit of their members.

Some associations within the health and aged industry are powerful lobby groups, able to influence government policy, resource allocation, the regulation and registration of their members, educational standards and public opinion. They monitor and influence legislation; identify, examine and take action on issues of significance for members and disseminate information on important issues. They are active in networking, organising conferences, liaising with their counterparts in Australia and other countries, publishing newsletters, websites and other resources for their members and promoting their members / profession / industry segment.

Many associations offer commercial services to their members direct, such as insurance, others negotiate tailored services on attractive terms by external providers.

The Australian health and aged care industry has hundreds of professional and industry associations, some of which are listed in this category.
