Please read the cover letter and directions within the protocol application document. The cover letter identifies the protocols that have been changed or added since the last update.

The application includes the Agency Authorized Procedure List that will need to be submitted with the application.
An example of an individual’s List of Authorized procedures is on the last page of the application. That form does not need to be returned to the department, but retained at the agency in the staff members credential file.
