Prev Article 50. - CREDENTIALINGNext


65-5006.Same; credentialing criteria. (a) The technical committee appointed pursuant to K.S.A. 65-5003 and amendments thereto and the secretary shall apply the following criteria to each credentialing application:

(1) The unregulated practice of the occupation or profession can harm or endanger the health, safety or welfare of the public and the potential for such harm is recognizable and not remote;

(2) the practice of the occupation or profession requires an identifiable body of knowledge or proficiency in procedures, or both, acquired through a formal period of advanced study or training, and the public needs and will benefit by assurances of initial and continuing occupational or professional ability;

(3) if the practice of the occupation or profession is performed, for the most part, under the direction of other health care personnel or inpatient facilities providing health care services, such arrangement is not adequate to protect the public from persons performing noncredentialed functions and procedures;

(4) the public is not effectively protected from harm by certification of members of the occupation or profession or by means other than credentialing;

(5) the effect of credentialing of the occupation or profession on the cost of health care to the public is minimal;

(6) the effect of credentialing of the occupation or profession on the availability of health care personnel providing services provided by such occupation or profession is minimal;

(7) the scope of practice of the occupation or profession is identifiable;

(8) the effect of credentialing of the occupation or profession on the scope of practice of other health care personnel, whether or not credentialed under state law, is minimal; and

(9) nationally recognized standards of education or training exist for the practice of the occupation or profession and are identifiable.

(b) Reports of the technical committee, and the secretary shall include specific findings on the criteria set forth in subsection (a). No report of the technical committee or the secretary shall recommend credentialing of any occupational or professional group of health care personnel unless all the criteria set forth in subsection (a) have been met.
