Have your say on the shared Code of conduct (the code) which sets out the expected professional behaviour and conduct for medical radiation practitioners and promotes safe care to help protect the public.
The Medical Radiation Practice Board (the Board), along with 11 other National Boards is reviewing the shared code and wants to hear from people who use it or have an interest in it. Your feedback will help to make the updated code more relevant to practitioners and better able to protect the public.
’The code sets out the Board’s expectations of professional behaviour and reflects the professionalism that is a fundamental part of being a health professional,’ Board Chair Mark Marcenko said.
The Code of conduct for health professions can be used by the public to help them understand what to expect from registered health professionals, including medical radiation practitioners.
Public consultation is open until 6 July 2021. Health practitioners, anyone who sees a health practitioner, education providers and employers are invited and encouraged to have their say.
Mr Marcenko encourages all practitioners to join in the consultation: ‘This is your chance to have a say in what we expect of registered medical radiation practitioners and other registered health professions.’
‘The Board wants to hear from you to help make the updated code easy to understand and clear about what conduct is expected from practitioners,’ he said.
For information about how to give your feedback please see the consultation paper on the Board’s consultation page.
