Professional Practice Resources

The CMLTO develops various learning resources to address MLTs' professional practice needs.

Professional Practice Learning Program (PPLP):

The PPLP is for use by all MLTs as part of their professional development activities or in preparation for a Practice Review. It consists of a series of modules focused on the Standards of Practice, including:

Learning resources for MLTs: NEW!

The learning resources (PDFs) define and explain clinical protocols and how they affect MLTs. The information is delivered clearly and concisely to help MLTs deliver excellent care.

Interprofessional collaboration case studies: NEW!

The provincial government has mandated the regulatory health Colleges via the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA), to promote interprofessional collaboration (IPC) among members and with other health profession regulatory Colleges. Through IPC, MLTs may:
• share their specialized knowledge with other members of the health care team
• provide unique value in diagnosis, treatment, and disease management.

The CMLTO develops professional practice resources for MLTs to support and advance IPC in order to enhance patient care. The following four case studies (PDFs) were developed to illustrate issues or opportunities for IPC in professional practice scenarios.
Case study #1: Responding to clinical needs with laboratory procedural changes
Case study #2: Simplification of laboratory processes for clinicians
Case study #3: In-sourcing diagnostic testing
Case study #4: Reducing specimen integrity issues
