From time to time, the Board may determine to establish a National Taskforce which will focus on a specific area to meet the needs of current and future members of AAPM and/or enhance the profile of Practice Managers and practice management in Australia.
Often these needs arise from the findings from our annual National Membership Satisfaction Surveys and/or emerging environmental factors.
The terms of these National Taskforces may vary depending on the scope and outcomes required.
Appointment to these Taskforces is often through Expressions of Interest from current eligible members of AAPM and may also entail inviting external experts who can bring added value to the group in order to achieve its overall objectives.

Terms of References are developed for each specific Taskforce to provide a clear outline of the scope, objective, roles and responsibilities, timing and outcomes of the taskforce along with requirements for regular reporting to the Board via the CEO.
The National Indigenous Taskforce is responsible for developing a mentoring strategy for Aboriginal Health workers with an interest in Practice Management. This strategy relates to career opportunities, resources and education.
