This course is going to look at the Regulations for the Alberta College of Medical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Technologists. It is going to cover the following topics – why it is necessary for you as a member of the College to take this course, the health professions act, restricted activities, the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, authorized professional titles, the College’s Continuing Competence Program and the organization of the ACMDTT.
As a member of the ACMDTT, or as an applicant to the ACMDTT for membership, it is important that you know and understand: the relevant legislation, regulations and standards, the authorized and restricted activities that you as a technologist or therapist can perform. You must be aware of the conditions of compliance and consequences of non-compliance. You need to be aware of the ACMDTT requirements for registration and employment in your area of practice. Successful completion of this course is mandatory for all new registrants with the College.
Module 1 is going to look at the overall legislation that governs the health professions in Alberta. This legislation is called the Health Professions Act.
The Health Professions Act was passed by the Alberta Legislature in May 1999. On December 31, 2001, the Health Professions Act was proclaimed in force. The Act provided legislation which grants professions the ability to self-govern, through the establishment of a regulatory body. The primary purpose of the Act is the protection of the public, and this driving principle is upheld through requirements and procedures established by professional regulatory bodies, such as the ACMDTT.
How the College functions is determined by the Legislation, the Regulations, Bylaws and Policies of the College. The Legislation is professional regulation established by the Government of Alberta to govern health professions. The Health Professions Act sets out in the law the powers, duties and responsibilities of the College, its registered/regulated members, employers and others with respect to professional regulation.
The Regulation describes how the ACMDTT will apply the legislation to the practice of the professions. The framework and scope for the College by-laws are specified in the legislation. The by-laws are a further application of the legislation and regulation and refer more specifically to the organization of the College and how it will conduct its business. By-laws are established by Council and specify procedural matters. The policies describe the way the College interprets and implements all the legislative layers under which the College is governed, including the legislation, the regulation and the by-laws.
The ACMDTT is committed to high quality medical diagnostic and therapeutic care and advancement of our professions. This includes: competent, ethical practitioners, self-regulated professions, members having cost-effect access to professional benefits, public and member awareness of the professions and government policy influence.
The ACMDTT regulates the professions of Medical Radiation Technology and Electroneurophysiology Technology. Within the profession of Medical Radiation Technology there are 4 specialties regulated by the College. The specialty groups represented by the ACMDTT include – Radiological Technologists, Radiation Therapists, Nuclear Medicine Technologists, Magnetic Resonance Technologists and Electroneurophysiology Technologists.
An individual, who meets registration requirements and is qualified to practice in a profession, must be registered with the appropriate College. Section 46 of the Health Professions Act explains the concept of mandatory registration and specifies the services that fall under this category. With the registration, a professional can make use of protected titles. The Act also prohibits employers from knowingly employing an individual who meets registration criteria for the regulated profession but does not register.
