Forms and templates for health professionals
The forms and sample letter templates in this section of our website are strictly for the use of health professionals. MACA bears no responsibility for unauthorised use of these forms as this may place children at risk.
Advice to Parent form
The Advice to Parent form documents the prescribed vehicle restraint(s) for the child, the review period, and information about installation and use. This form meets the requirements of AS/NZS 4370:2013 Restraint of children with disabilities, and medical conditions, in motor vehicles and best practice.
MACA recommends a copy of the Advice to Parent form be carried in each vehicle the child travels in. In some states and territories, this is a legal requirement.
By state or territory
We've reviewed all state and territory road laws relating to the transport of children (under 16 years) with disabilities or medical conditions. We found that in many cases they are inconsistent, unclear, and not supported by community education. This makes it hard for you to find the information you need to do your job.
We've developed easy to use templates, inline with the different laws in each state and territory for the most common prescribing scenarios. This will ensure you meet your professional responsibilities and provide the correct advice to parents so that they can comply with road laws.
It was great to get feedback from a parent that the referral letters made it so easy to get a medical certificate from their child’s doctor. Thanks MACA!
