The Australian Orthotic Prosthetic Association Ltd. (AOPA) is the peak professional body representing orthotist/prosthetists in Australia.
AOPA self regulates the profession and sets standards and codes which are upheld by the membership.
Currently AOPA has over 400 members and represents more than 80% of all practicing orthotist/prosthetists in Australia.
In February 2015 AOPA provided a pre-budget submission to Treasury which focussed on 2 key initiatives aiming to reduce barriers to consumer access to vital Orthotic and Prosthetic services.
These included the expansion of the Medicare Chronic Disease Management program to allow funded Orthotic consultations in the primary care setting and the funding of research into the P&O workforce, including dispersion and retention.
The AOPA Board is seeking expressions of interest from the membership for the Congress Convenor 2016 volunteer role, as well as general congress committee interest.
