Clinical Task Instructions

Clinical task instructions or "CTIs" describe the best practice process for undertaking a delegated or skill shared tasks.

CTIs are used for training and competency assessment and also for monitoring and governance of the delegated or skill-shared task.

The CTIs on this page have been written and trialled by allied health teams and reviewed for educational and clinical validity by allied health professional networks in Queensland Health.

Clinical Task Instructions should only be implemented in a local work unit that possesses a delegation or skill sharing framework.

The framework should include safety, governance, evaluation and monitoring systems that will support the delegation/skill sharing model in the team or organisation. Components include training, competency assessment and review, delegation or workload allocation, communication, collaborative practice and supervision mechanisms, and description of the responsibilities and accountabilities of employees and the organisation.

CTIs can only be safely implemented if the healthcare provider implementing the CTI has training, competency assessment and ongoing supervision and support provided by a practitioner who is competent to deliver the clinical task.

Resources are available for developing safe and effective delegation or skill sharing models. For Queensland Health staff, further information is available on the AHPOQ qheps site.
