Expanded Practice for Anaesthetic Technicians

The Medical Sciences Council has developed a draft policy on Expanded Practice for Anaesthetic Technicians which is open for discussion and available here. The brief consultation document covers a definition, principles, pre-requisites, activities, standards for ATs to perform PICC line insertion and to work  PACU and an evaluation framework for deciding if an expanded practice activity is appropriate.
