New Professional Practice Guideline available

20 November 2021

Guidelines for evaluating professional practice activities
Professional Practice staff launched a new practice resource (PDF) for registrants and other laboratory stakeholders to assist them in answering the question: “Can I or am I allowed to do this activity?”
The guideline:
  • uses a 4-step framework to break down complex concepts into actionable processes
  • prompts stakeholders to ask important questions
  • contains an appendix that provides specific examples.
Interested in learning more? Join our webinar on January 27, 2022, from 12:00 – 12:45 pm where Professional Practice staff will provide an overview of the guideline and provide examples of applying it within MLT practice. For those who cannot attend the live session, the webinar will be recorded and posted on the CMLTO website. Click here to register for the live event.

MLT survey

17 November 2021

The Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks (CCLB) is undertaking a review of occupational language benchmarks on behalf of the Canadian Alliance of Medical Laboratory Professionals Regulators (CAMLPR). All Canadian-certified medical laboratory technologists currently working as MLTs are invited to complete a short survey to share how they use their English language skills at work. 

Please complete the survey by Friday, November 26, 2021. This survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Please complete the survey only once.

Survey findings will be explored in more detail through one-to-one interviews with MLTs from across Canada.
