Question and answer
Describe why it is important to adhere to the agreed scope of the job role
As a health care professional, you will most likely have a license, certification, and or/job description that is defined by a Practice Act and/ or scope of practice to which you are expected to adhere. [ Although many of the health care workers will have studied similar curriculum in the course of their education, a physical therapist is not a nurse, a social worker is not a speech therapist,
and a chiropractor is not a neurosurgeon. In this same light, a physical therapy aide is not a physical therapist, and a nurse's aide is not a nurse. The medical assistant in the physician's office cannot diagnose or prescribe. ]
