ACAP represented by Ian Patrick (President), Alan Eade (Vice President) and Les Hotchin (Secretary) met with representatives from the Victorian Department of Health in Melbourne on 16 July 2010.

The Department of Health was represented by Jennifer McDonald (Director, Health Regulation and Reform) and delegates from the Ambulance Services Unit.

The discussion was focused on the current state of paramedic registration, the opportunities that are being missed for public protection and public safety, and the opportunities for advancing the issue of registration in the current Australian context.

Further discussion and information exchange is planned.
