Dermal Therapist
    Dermal Therapists provide various dermal therapy procedures like Laser, Microderma
asion, IPL, LED therapy, Dermapen Collagen Induction Therapy,Chemical peels,Skin needling, Super hair removal and other skin treatments (Canbe
a ACT, 2018). They are responsible for providing consultation to the clients in advanced skin diagnosis, develop treatment plans for the clients on the basis of medical history,advice the clients for topical and in-clinic skin treatments, and advice for selection of appropriate skin products, maintain a photo record of 'before and after treatment' for the client after therapy, manage the adverse incidents and collect the client feedback.
Cosmetic Nurse
    Cosmetic Nurse provides nursing assistance during elective surgical procedures (cosmetic surgery) which are performed to change the morphological features of the body (Fa
ah,2012).For example the surgeries for facial alterations, nose lift, tummy tucks, face lifts, and
east enlargements that are planned and not performed in emergency situations are taken care by cosmetic nurse. The responsibilities of a cosmetic nurse involve observation of wound and dressing, taking out blood, pre-operative tests analysis, review of medical history, patient screening before surgery, monitoring the vital signs, preparing the operations theatre for the procedure and delivering follow up care to the operated patient. The cosmetic nurse has to maintain high standards of practice during her work.
Question 2                                    |_| Yes        |_| No

Dermal Therapist must explore the internal and external reasons of why the therapy is required. They must also suggest the patient with alternative treatment options with potential complications of each. The therapist must analyze the patient's expectations from the potential therapy. If the patient is found to have mental illness or low self esteem, he may be sent to General Practitioner or a counsellor. During the pre-operative stage, a written informed consent must be taken from the patient. There must be a given a cooling -off period given between the first consultation and the therapy day. For the children below 18 years of age, if the therapy has no medical justification, the cooling offf interval must be extended to 3 months during which the patient's willingness for therapy must be explored through repeated consultations. Proper documented post operative instructions ahould be given to the pateient during his discharge from the hospital. The doctors must not be involved in false practices of taking commissions from the agents for admission of patients. The therapists are expected to display a standard behavior that improves respect and trust for the community.
Cosmetic Nurse
    The cosmetic nurses must provide care as per the applicable laws, regulations, protocols, and best standards of practice. They must be registered with Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). They must provide the treatment only if they are well trained and experienced in that particular treatment procedure. They must provide safe and quality care in delivering the services. They must maintain the confidentiality and privacy of the patient. It protects the patient from any disclosure of information to the outsider. So this way they have to abide to Privacy Act, Privacy regulations and amendments of Australian Government. They must get an informed consent from the patient, that the patient and his family members have understood the benefits and risks of the treatment. Additionally, they must also obtain informed financial consent from the patient and his family.They must inform the patient about all the potential expenditure of the therapy, in written form, before the admission and treatment.They must consider the information privacy, and maintain proper records of patient's health. They must deliver care and medicines effectively and safely to the patient. The nurses must use the medical devices effectively and safely. They must maintain a healthy and safe workplace. During post-operative care they must follow basic principles of infection control and prevention.
These guidelines provide appropriate ways of imparting quality care and responsive dermal procedures to the patients according to the norms and regulations of Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC) and prevent any misconduct and malpractices. They are aimed to safeguards the rights of the citizens in best possible manner and protect them from falling into any wrong hands.
Question 3                                    |_| Yes        |_| No

Dermal Therapist
    Dermal therapist can undertake only the surgery for which they are trained and qualified (Australian Health Ministers’ Council, 2011). For instance, a laser therapist cannot do peeling procedure. Dermal Therapists have to take informed consent from the patients and their family members. They cannot give medicines or recommend a surgery against the willingness of the patient and his family. They cannot take additional charges or commission from the patients for doing any kind of surgical procedure. It is considered unlawful.
Cosmetic Nurse
    A cosmetic Nurse can only assist the cosmetic surgeons and therapists in the procedures. She cannot write prescriptions for the patients.

Question 4                                    |_| Yes        |_|No
List and explain ways to reduce your risk of litigation as a dermal therapist and/or cosmetic nurse.
    The dermal therapist or Cosmetic Nurse may list all the conditions of treatments in the pre-operative informed consent documents, that are signed by the patient before the surgery (Kronemyer, 2018). The informed consent forms must have all the details about the risks, benefits and alternatie therapies availabale for the problem. The patients must be aware of who is going to do the surgery and what is the qualification of the surgeon. All the risks and side effects of the treatment or procedure must beelaborated to the patient and his family in written form, and the document must be signed by the patient. Other than this, quality education and training of the healthcare professionals also prevents many adverse events. Careful and hygienic use of devices and surgical equipments prevents infection. The care imparted must be safeand in accordance to the national quality standards.
Assessor’s comments
