Latest News From The ASC Executive.
National Certification Project for Medical Scientists and Technicians
Jenny Ross, ASC President, and Terese Boost, Chief Examiner, are representing the ASC on the National Certification Project for Medical Scientists and Technicians.
In June 2017 Human Capital Alliance (HCA) was commissioned by AIMS, in partnership with the AACB, to explore the “Establishment of a National Model for Professional Certification of Medical Scientists and Technicians Working in Australian Pathology Laboratories”.
This project has been funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health through its Quality Use of Pathology Program (QUPP).
Two workshops were held in Sydney in December 2017 and February 2018 (and attended by Jenny and Terese) to discuss critical elements for designing and implementing a certification scheme.
The next phase will be face-to-face workshops with stakeholders using the Delphi method to arrive at a position paper.
ASC members will have an opportunity to participate in these workshops and further information will be posted on the ASC website as it becomes available.
