CAMLPR Survey Invitation: Entry-level Field-of-Practice MLT Competencies

On behalf of the Canadian Alliance of Medical Laboratory Professionals Regulators (CAMLPR), the CMLTO invites you to provide feedback via survey on entry-level field-of-practice competency profiles for MLTs.

CAMPLR has taken the initiative to further define the practice of MLTs within Canada. The goal of the Flexible Pathways to Registration for Medical Laboratory Technologists project, funded by the Government of Canada, is to implement registration for each field of practice where jurisdictional legislation permits. Future MLT registrants would have fields of practice designated on their registration, allowing them of the distinctive skills and knowledge required in each area of MLT practice.

Field-of-practice registration is designed to enhance the efficiency of registering new members to the MLT workforce. This approach will create pathways for internationally educated MLTs and individuals from non-traditional backgrounds to integrate into the Canadian healthcare system more smoothly.

The development of comprehensive entry-level competency profiles for each field of practice is an essential step in this project. These profiles describe the competencies that an MLT should possess to practice safely and effectively within their respective fields of practice upon their first day of practice as an MLT (i.e., entry-level).

Survey participation involves providing input into the draft entry-level competency profiles for one of the following proposed fields of practice: clinical chemistry, hematology, clinical microbiology, transfusion science, histology, gynecologic cytology, non-gynecologic cytology, cytogenetics, or molecular diagnostics.

The survey should take around 25 minutes to complete. You have the option to save and continue later at your convenience. Kindly complete the survey by Wednesday, November 8, 2023.
