BRIEFING ON “THE ALLIED HEALTH PROFESSIONALS ACT” AND THE INTRODUCTION OF THE “ALLIED HEALTH PROFESSIONS INFORMATION SYSTEM (AHPiS)”.

The Malaysian Institute of Medical Laboratory Sciences (MIMLS) has been given the task by the Allied Health Science Division (BSKB) of the Ministry of Health to disseminate this very important information. The Allied Health Bill is at it’s final phase before it becomes an act that  will affect 23 professions including the Medical Laboratory Technologists/Scientists.

MIMLS shall be conducting a series of briefings to enlighten our members concerning the Allied Health Professionals Act (AHP). 
Allied Health Professionals shall be required to register in order to practice their trade and thus we will also include a hands-on training of the on-line registration using the Allied Health Professionals information System (AHPiS).
This project shall be undertaken next year (2015) so please keep a close watch on this blog and an official letter of invitation to attend the briefing. In collaboration with the Allied Health Division of the Ministry of Health, the briefing shall be done through zoning of the nation. The number of practitioners especially laboratory personnel are very large and the task will be immense but hopefully the few that are chosen will be representative of each medical laboratory institution and will be able to disseminate the briefing to their colleagues especially on the registration  of Allied Health Professionals by using AHPiS.
