A consensus framework for ethical practices in health care, developed in collaboration by a large group of Australian health leaders, and endorsed by Australian federal, state and territory health ministers, was launched in Tokyo on 20 July 2018.

The College was one of 50 signatory bodies to sign the framework, which was developed in collaboration with a host of Australian professional health bodies, industry organisations, hospital and health services associations, regulators, patient and advocacy groups and other related organisations. The following media release has been issued by the APEC Small and Medium Enterprise Working Group.
