Release 1

This version was released in HLT Health Training Package release 2.0 and meets the requirements of the 2012 Standards for Training Packages.

Change to packaging rules. Significant changes to core units.

Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of medical practice assistants whose work includes a broad range of administrative functions combined with tasks to support medical practitioners in the delivery of care to clients. These tasks are completed under the direct or indirect supervision of a medical practitioner.

A medical practice assistant may work under the supervision of a health care professional other than a medical practitioner, but this should only occur where:

  • the health care professional is in the same practice as the medical practitioner and
  • the medical practitioner has agreed to the other health care professional providing the supervision

A registered nurse must accept or refuse responsibility for supervision of an activity of a medical practice assistant, according to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) Decision-making framework. An enrolled nurse cannot provide supervision.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
