The CMLTO has released four new interprofessional collaboration (IPC) case studies for MLTs to support and advance IPC in order to enhance patient care. These new resources augment the four IPC case studies the CMLTO had previously released, bringing the total to eight.
The series was developed to illustrate opportunities for IPC in various professional practice scenarios.

The Competence Evaluation (CE) is the third component of the CMLTO Quality Assurance Program (QAP) as described by the Medical Laboratory Technology Act, 1991. The purpose of the competence evaluation is to assess a member’s knowledge, skill, and judgment in one or more of the specialties in which the member is registered to practise. 

The Quality Assurance Committee (QAC) may require a member to participate in a CE assessment if the Committee is of the opinion, based on a review of the member’s portfolio, the results of a practice review or any other relevant written information, that the member’s knowledge, skill, and judgment are unsatisfactory. Members are NOT randomly selected; they are directed by the QAC to participate in the CE assessment.
