Decision

After careful consideration of the submissions the Board received on this consultation, the Board resolved to change the name of the scope of practice to the ‘Dispensing Optician Scope of Practice’, but not to make any amendments to the description of the scope of practice at this time, pending incorporation of formal auxiliary task training into all courses accredited for registration and/or via implementation of a postgraduate training course available to all Dispensing Opticians.
