The Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia has released an update on the finalised supervised practice arrangements for 2014 for:
Under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory (National Law), practitioners who have qualified from courses that require a period of supervised practice need to be supervised under arrangements approved by the Board.
All graduate practitioners required to complete a period of supervised practice in 2014 must participate in the relevant Board approved supervised practice program.
The Australian Institute of Radiography (AIR) will offer the Supervised practice program (formerly known as the NPDP) to eligible graduates of diagnostic radiography and radiation therapy programs of study.
The Australian & New Zealand Society for Nuclear Medicine (ANZSNM) will offer the Professional development year to eligible graduates of nuclear medicine programs of study.
The following principles will apply in the 2014 programs:
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 about the programs can be found on the Supervised Practice in 2014 page.
