Assistants to Licensed Independent Practitioners
A single set of criteria will be used to judge the competency
of all clinicians who provide care, treatment, and services
within the organization, regardless of whether they are an
employee of the organization or an employee of a licensed
independent practitioner in the organization.
Prior to the provision of care, treatment or services, the
qualifications and competence of the non-employee individual,
brought in to the organization by a licensed independent
practitioner to provider care, treatment or services, within
the scope of the organization's services are assessed by the
organization and determined to be commensurate with the
qualifications and competence required if the individual were
to be employed by the organization.
The qualifications and performance/competency of each of the
above described individual will be assessed at the same
frequency as individuals employed by the organization.
Should this service which is to be provided by the individual
not be currently performed by anyone employed by the
organization, it is the Medical Director's responsibility to
consult the appropriate professional organization guidelines
with respect to expectations for credentials and competence.
