Q: Is there value in maintaining a separate Allied Health Professional (AHP) policy/manual?


Yes. An AHP manual defines the formally recognized professionals who are designated as AHPs within a health care entity i.e., those who are granted privileges and are authorized to practice pursuant to a job description (regardless of whether they are employed). The AHP manual establishes the basic and specific eligibility criteria, conduct requirements, and general practice parameters that an organized medical staff determines are appropriate in a designated health care setting. Although there is no requirement that a separate AHP policy or manual be established, such a document makes it easier for AHPs to know what specifically applies to their ability to practice in the health care setting. It also becomes an easy reference document for knowing what categories of AHPs require privileges as compared to those who may practice without privileges under a position description.
