Special bulletins from the MLPAO for members are posted here for reference.
Education Bulletin – PLI and MLA/T Mobile Collections
We have received a few questions from MLA/T members regarding Professional Liability Insurance (PLI) coverage, and we thought we would take this opportunity to share PLI information with all members.
Education Bulletin – Phlebotomy Certification
Successful completion of the MLPAO Certification Exam confirms that an MLA/T has attained a recognized level of standards and training. MLA/Ts who have passed the MLPAO exam are fully certified to perform phlebotomy and have met the required standards for entry to practice. Additional certification in phlebotomy is not required.
Education Bulletin – MLA/T Scope of Practice
As laboratories across Ontario continue to cope with the ongoing shortage of MLTs, we have received concerns from MLA/Ts about being asked to perform duties that may be outside of their scope of practice. PLI protects active MLA/T members from allegations of errors, omissions, or negligence committed within the scope of their professional activities.
