Much of AMA Queensland’s policy work is undertaken by committees. Our committees work to develop policy and drive change in areas of special interest.
The purpose of the AMA Queensland Council of General Practice is to formulate policy, drive medico-political change and provide high quality and timely advice to the association in the area of general practice. Federally, the AMA Council of General Practice advocates for general practitioner members nationally on issues of policy.
The AMA Queensland Visiting Medical Officers’ (VMO) committee discusses terms and conditions, as well as any issues currently faced by VMOs, including contract negotiations, industrial disputes and issues of public health policy.
If you would like more information on the committee or you would like to get involved, please contact AMA Queensland.
AMA Queensland’s Ethics and Medico-Legal Committee formulates policy and drives change in the area of ethics and the law. Its main purpose is to advise AMA Queensland Council on matters of concern.
