Policy Domains

All system-wide policies and guidelines are organised under a set of 18 Policy Domains, which enables policies and their associated guidelines and any supporting documents to be categorised by topic area.

Every policy and guideline is aligned to one Policy Domain, based on the key topic area that the policy or guideline addresses. Policies and guidelines related to children or Aboriginal health matters are located in different domains according to the policy or guideline topic. 

Each Domain has a Domain Custodian with accountability for the day-to-day management and oversight of the Domain.

A Domain Custodian is an appropriate Department Executive Team member with knowledge of or subject matter expertise in the relevant Policy Domain topic area.
