*Applications are required for:
1) A New Technology / Clinical Practice
Any technology or clinical practice (TCP) to be introduced that has not already been performed at Monash Health requires an application. Variations to existing procedures and treatments that involve a new device or item of equipment may also require an application if they are significantly different from existing practice. In these cases, a ‘New TCP’ Application must be submitted.
2) A Change of use of Technology
When changes of use to current approved technologies or clinical practices are planned, a ‘Change of use’ Application must be submitted.
3) Reclassification of a technology/ clinical practice to become Standard Practice
If applicants wish to continue to use a previously approved technology or clinical practice after the standard two-year monitoring period, a Review for ‘Reclassification for standard practice‘ must be submitted.
The committee reviews previously approved applications for reclassification to standard practice two years after introduction of the TCP or earlier by request from the relevant Department Head.
* Applications are not required when a technology or clinical practice is already in practice at Monash Health. However, the clinician should seek advice from the Monash Health Credentialing and Scope of Practice Committee regarding the credentialing requirements to undertake the procedure.
The TCPC meets once a month to review and approve applications. The dates for the meetings can be downloaded from the link below. Applications are due two weeks prior to the meeting to allow sufficient time for the evidence behind application to be reviewed.
Additional resources are also provided to help you in filling up the form.
