De-registrations of Membership
At its meeting of 5th March 2014, the Executive withdrew membership and registration from Ian Wood for breach of Ethics Code 9 relating to professional conduct:
(a) avoid any acts that will damage the reputation of the profession
(b) maintain professional affiliations, skills and practices, with an expectation that a practitioner will at all times maintain standards of personal conduct which reflect well on the profession and enhance public confidence.
At its meeting of 27th February 2015, the Executive approved the recommendation of the Practice Standards Committee to de-register and expel Gladis Robinson from the Association for non-disclosure of behaviour putting her client at risk. Her appeal against expulsion which was heard at the May meeting was declined. The facts of the complaint were not contested.
At its meeting of 28th May 2015, the Executive accepted the Practice Standards Committee recommendation that registered practitioner, Kumeroa Johnson be de-registered and expelled from the Association for serious misconduct. The facts of the complaint were not contested. She did not appeal the recommendation.
The Executive accepted the Practice Standards Committee recommendation that registered practitioner, Theresa Spinks be de-registered and expelled from the Association for falsifying client records. She appealed the recommendation but the facts of the complaint were not contested.
There are historical de-registrations which have been deleted from the website because of time and because it is believed that the member is no longer practising in a health or social service field.
The names and de-registration details can be obtained from the Executive Director of DAPAANZ.
