Allied Healthcare Professional Membership
Advances in technology have made sonography equipment more portable. This means that many allied healthcare professionals like nurses, doctors and midwives have started to include point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) in their scope of practice. While it is important to note that their use of ultrasound is governed by their own regulatory bodies that have defined specific parameters for the application of ultrasound, giving them the option to join Sonography Canada allows them the opportunity to access our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programs.
Allied Healthcare Professional members can be any licensed, qualified, non-sonographer healthcare professional who operates within a scope of practice that includes the limited application of ultrasound for diagnostic purposes.
