Austrakiab Patients Association Corporate Membership

Become an APA Corporate Member

Whether it’s avoidable deaths, medical negligence leading to long term ill health or the shock of out-of-pocket expenses, or simply wanting to provide excellent, compassionate, research-driven care there is growing worldwide momentum around the importance of listening to and engaging with patients. The Australian Patients Association (APA) is part of an international movement to ensure that patients are truly at the centre of their healthcare. It is leading a healthcare revolution in Australia that is changing the way we think about patient care and services. Unlike single disease focus lobby and self-help groups, the APA advocates for all patients in Australia’s healthcare system.

Every year, through our helpline and website we assist many Australians to understand their rights, learn how to access the best possible care, how to navigate the public and private systems and where appropriate make complaints and seek redress.

Why Join?

As a Corporate Member of the APA, your organisation will send a clear message to all stakeholders that it supports patient centred care, empathises with and wants to understand the patient experience. As a Corporate Member you will enjoy positive name association with the APA which will enhance your brand, along with opportunities to network at the highest levels with other supporters and partners of the APA.

The APA enjoys a growing media and public profile and is often called upon to make comment on patient related issues on television, radio and traditional and digital press. To ensure we remain top of mind with the media, Dr Nick Coatsworth has been appointed as our Ambassador for Health Reform. This media profile drives an increasing number of visitors to the APA website and social media which will provide high visibility exposure for your organisation.

Our expertise and extensive networks mean that we work with corporate members to provide opportunities that:

Reach new audiences – As the only health organisation that advocates for all patients in Australia’s healthcare system, we can reach a far wider and broader audience particularly for patients with co-morbidities that are accessing a number of different services. Corporate Membership means you will benefit from our extensive network.

Aligning your brand with us will reinforce and enhance your high standard of excellence and status as a thought leader.
