Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) Review - Proposed New Descriptor for Item 16522

In view of considerable unexplained variation in the use of item 16522, a new descriptor has been proposed for this item. The detail in the suggested new description has been greatly increased in an attempt to make the item less open to varied interpretation. Members are invited to provide This email address is being protected from spambots.

I am interested in assessing Workplace Based Assessments for the trainees undertaking the Certificate of Women’s Health, Diploma and Diploma Advanced trainees. How can I formalize this process?

If you are approached by a trainee to participate in a Workplace Based Assessment you need to be approved by the trainee's Training Supervisor prior to undertaking the activity. For Diploma and Diploma Advanced trainees your qualifications must be equal to, or above, that of the trainee's current training program i.e., you must hold the Diploma or above to conduct the assessment for a candidate who is in the Diploma Training Program or hold the Diploma Advanced or above to conduct the assessment for a candidate who is in the Diploma Advanced Training Program. Only the designated Training Mentor can conduct Workplace Based Assessments for their Certificate of Women's Health trainees.

Training Supervisors will have a list of approved Assessors (and the qualification level at which they can conduct Workplace Based Assessments), which will be updated each calendar year.
