Government – Submissions & Lobbying


2018 updates

ESSA provided feedback to Allied Health Professions Australia (AHPA) for AHPA to respond to the  Australian Labor Party’s Draft National Health Platform.

 ESSA is pleased to note that the role of exercise physiologists  in addressing health and lifestyle issues is acknowledged in AHPA’s response to the Draft National Health Platform as follows:

 “AHPA is particularly concerned that the draft platform does not state explicit support for the role of allied health professionals such as psychologists, dietitians, exercise physiologists and physiotherapists in supporting lifestyle change. These professions are the primary source of support for consumers addressing health and lifestyle issues but are not acknowledged as such.”
