The Board has been made aware that the publication of its supervision policy and the documented levels of supervision required, has created several questions around its implementation. The Board’s understanding is that these questions are regarding those practitioners registered in training scopes. The Board is currently considering this matter and will provide further advice to the sector regarding implementation of the policy in due course.

The Board wishes to advise that in the interim, the status quo i.e., the level of supervision required before the policy was released, for those in “trainee scopes” remains.

Raising a concern (registered practitioner)

Raising a concern about a colleague

Under Section 45 of the Act, if you are a registered health practitioner, you are obliged to inform the Board if you believe that another registered health practitioner has a mental or physical condition which impacts on their competence to practise in the profession of medical imaging and radiation therapy.

If a concern has been raised about you

When the Board receives a complaint about you they may decide to:

  • refer you for a competence review
  • refer the matter to a professional conduct committee 
  • order you to undergo a medical examination or testing
  • establish a competence programme
  • establish an individual recertification programme
  • apply an interim suspension (in certain circumstances)
  • apply an interim condition on your scope of practice; or
  • take no further action.
