Professional Standards of Practice form the framework to measure the quality of care and service provided by regulated members of the Alberta College of Medical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Technologists. The standards are broadly stated recognizing that practice communities vary, and that practice continues to evolve in response to changes in legislation, technology, and consumer needs.
Standards of Practice describe to the public, those practices considered essential to the provision of high quality care. Those same Standards, in conjunction with entry-to-practice competency statements, are used by educators to design education programs and practice assessments. Regulated members use the Standards of Practice for self-monitoring processes and to facilitate continued learning initiatives.
