Registered persons are encouraged to undergo CPG CPD activities related to these medications. However, until approval by the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) approval, these may not be used in clinical practice yet. Registered persons will be notified when approval has been obtained. The finally approved SAHPRA list may appear different to the current list.
It is possible that at the time of the offering of your specific qualification, this teaching/training of that skill/medication may not have formed part of that curriculum/course (subsequently added to the scope of practice without additional training). Therefore, to ensure patient safety, these skills/medications require CPG CPD related activities. In addition, the context of the skill and medication that previously was on the scope of practice may have changed.
Permission and consultation with the transferring healthcare provider must be sought. Where additional interventions (commencement) or alterations of in-situ medications and equipment/devices (which are not in the scope of practice) are likely, this transfer should be undertaken by a registered Emergency Care Provider with a relevant skill set. Where no considerable alterations/amendments to the medications or equipment/devices are necessary, this transfer may be undertaken (this is strictly applicable to an interfacility transfer context). Registered persons undertaking these transfers must be prepared to act in the case of acute deterioration.
