These tasks are completed under the direct or indirect supervision of a medical practitioner.
A medical practice assistant may work under the supervision of a health care professional other than a medical practitioner, but this should only occur where:
A registered nurse must accept or refuse responsibility for supervision of an activity of a medical practice assistant, according to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) Decision-making framework. An enrolled nurse cannot provide supervision.
