Guide for use:

This DSS is a component of the Registered health labour force DSS. The Registered health labour force DSS contains profession-specific DSS for health professions listed with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency

Note that a health professional may be qualified and registered in more than one profession.

Within each profession-specific DSS there are data clusters that apply to health professionals employed in the profession. Main job data clusters apply to all health professionals employed in the profession. Second job data clusters relate only to those health professionals employed in more than one job in the profession. All other workforce data elements in the DSS apply to all jobs held in the profession.
