MSC Consultation Outcomes - Expanded Practice

In September 2017 the Council published a consultation document seeking feedback on a proposal enabling registered medical laboratory science practitioners to work in expanded practice roles approved by the Council.

The Council has developed an application form for appropriately trained practitioners to apply for IV Cannulation to be included on their APC, and an application form for healthcare facilities to apply to the Council to have an expanded practice to be approved.

The Council extends its thanks and appreciation to the individuals and groups who provided feedback to a recent (September 2017) consultation on a proposal to introduce an expanded practice pathway for registered medical laboratory science practitioners.
