In APA 7th referencing style, organisation names should not be abbreviated in the reference list. The complete name of the organisation should be used. However, when citing the organisation for the first time in the in-text reference, you provide the full name and follow it with the abbreviation in parentheses. For subsequent mentions, only the abbreviation should be used in the text.


(Australian Institute of Health and Welfare [AIHW], 2018)  OR  Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW, 2018)
