The Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia has released an update on supervised practice arrangements for 2014.
Under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009 (National Law), practitioners who have qualified from courses identified as requiring a period of supervised practice need to be supervised under arrangements approved by the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (the Board).
All graduate practitioners required to complete a period of supervised practice in 2014 must participate in a Board approved supervised practice program.
The Board is currently finalising arrangements for supervised practice in 2014 with the Australian Institute of Radiography (AIR) and the Australian & New Zealand Society for Nuclear Medicine (ANZSNM).
While the Board has not made final arrangements, the following principles will apply in the 2014 year:
All practitioners holding general registration can provide day-to-day supervision to practitioners. Supervision arrangements must be provided so that the number of supervised practitioners does not exceed the number of general registrants in the same physical location at the time of supervision.
Additional details will be published as soon as arrangements have been finalised.
