HPCSA releases scopes of practice proposal On 11 May 2018, the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) released their proposal document for the new scopes of practice in psychology, including for neuropsychology. To summarise the parts that apply to neuropsychology: Neuropsychology will be a specialist category, as will clinical psychology, counselling psychology and educational psychology. There will be a new “general” category. Psychological interventions are categorised into low-intensity, medium-intensity and high-intensity interventions. Psychologists in the specialist categories will be allowed to apply high-intensity interventions, which include low- and medium-intensity interventions. You can read the definitions of the intervention intensities on page 21 of “Report of Working Group on Promulgations of Regulation Feb 2018” (see below). The scope of practice of neuropsychology is defined in the following way: “Neuropsychology is a specialist category concerned with the assessment, diagnosis, evaluation and rehabilitation of people of all ages with neurological problems, including traumatic brain injury, stroke, toxic and metabolic disorders, tumours and neurodegenerative disease”. The proposal allows for “transverse registration” for psychologists “who are able to satisfy the board that they have the requisite competence, experience, training and qualifications to practice in another category for which they have successfully applied.” Please read through the following document from the HPCSA for more information: SOP Update to the profession 10 May 2018 Final Report of Working Group on Promulgations of Regulation Feb 2018 Posted by Dr Sharon Truter
