NPAAC Supervision Certification Modules

Over the past twelve months, discipline-specific groups of Fellows have been working collaboratively with our Genetic Pathology Fellows in preparation for the release of the revised Requirements for the Supervision in the Clinical Governance of Medical Pathology Laboratories (Fourth Edition 2018). The College wishes to ensure that appropriate measures are in place so that Fellows who are currently supervising clinically-robust molecular and genetic testing services can maintain their involvement after the revised come into force on 01 August 2019. The College has therefore developed discipline-specific certification modules for current supervisors of molecular testing who are not genetic pathologists. It is acknowledged that this is a complex and constantly changing environment and the content of the modules and approach may be required to be amended in the future.
