Whether looking to become a Medical Director/AOA or setting up your own independent practice, all nurses and physicians in collaborative working environments will want to take this all-encompassing and interactive THMA Consulting course.

A step-by-step creation of quality medical directives highlights this Supplementary Course which also builds upon the prerequisite training received in the Role and Responsibilities of the Medical Director/AOA Course.

Created to benefit NPS and MDs as well as RNs and RPNs, the Medical Directives Development course thoroughly analyses evidence-based literature and regulatory standards for the development of directives in medical aesthetics practices.

The practical component of this comprehensive training will challenge participants to use the acquired knowledge to design and build medical directives for Neuromodulator, Hyaluronic Acid and Hyaluronidase procedures.

“If you don’t know where to start when it comes to medical directives, then let us help!” – course trainer Jeanine Harrison NP.

Jeanine Harrison will lead training in the Medical Directive Development course. She has drawn on her experience as an Authorizer with Ordering Authority (AOA), along with questions from medical professionals who are contemplating independent practice or becoming an AOA, to create and shape this online educational course.

“Most of these people have a basic understanding of medical directives, but are at a loss when it comes to the required practice and legal elements of of the directives,” Jeanine says. “Learning how to do it yourself is not just efficient. It’s essential to understanding the purpose of a medical directive.”

Collaboration in medical directives is essential

A review of medical directives will help to ensure that both AOAs and nurses are in a better position to perform controlled acts in medical aesthetics and provide treatments that involve prescriptive medications.

The course will also address the legal implication of each medical directive as they are being created. Nurses have to know how to protect themselves. RNs and RPNs should not take on a medical directive without an understanding of their own responsibility and looking at them carefully.

“That’s a recipe for trouble,” Jeanine says.

Jeanine also teaches the Role and Responsibilities of the Medical Director/AOA. That Supplementary Course serves as a didactic overview of the standards, regulations and resources required in the collaborative role of the AOA and the nurse in a medical aesthetics.

Please note that participants must complete training in the Role and Responsibilities of the Medical Director/AOA course before registering for the Medical Directive Development course.

The AOA course is a perfect introduction to the more practical and interactive Medical Directive Development course.
