AHPRA

I’m a little disorganised with my approach to the CurryAus study. If I find a new useful resource I go off on a tangent and see if I can find any Curry references in that resource.

Although I suggest this as a good resource for general research I had never checked AHPRA, The Australian Health Protection Agency Register of Practioners, for details of my Currys.

I dipped into this resource today to see who I could find. Firstly I put Curry into the Family Name field of the search box and was rewarded with 50 results in alphabetical order. I got a message telling me that 50 was the maximum number of hits displayed and, that if I wanted more, I should narrow my search. That I did.

I narrowed by State/Territory and found these Currys:

  • ACT – 3
  • NSW – 35
  • Queensland – 10
  • South Australia – 4
  • Tasmania – 2
  • Victoria – 18
  • Western Australia – 4

I was able to tie two of the results to people in my database

Among those in the full list were 50 nurses,  1 dentist, 2 occupational therapists, 2 pharmacists and 6 medical practitioners.

As I really should be doing other things I added AHPRA to my CurryAus Resource Progress spreadsheet to be checked, noted what I had done and went back to the tasks at hand.
