What is the Conjoint Committee?
The Conjoint Committee for the Recognition of Training in CT Coronary Angiography (CTCA) is composed of three representatives from each of the following organisations:
- The Australasian Association of Nuclear Medicine Specialists – formerly the Australian and New Zealand Association of Physicians in Nuclear Medicine (ANZAPNM)
- The Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSANZ)
- The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR)
Its aim is to promote a collaborative and consistent model of CTCA training and service delivery in Australia and New Zealand.
The Committee operates under legally binding regulations which ensure that decisions are made on a consensus basis across the three professional bodies.
The Committee’s role is to:
- Formulate and review guidelines for training in CT Coronary Angiography
- Formulate and review guidelines for training courses in CT Coronary Angiography
- Provide certification of satisfactory completion of training in CT Coronary Angiography (or the withdrawal of such certification)
- Maintain and publish a web-based register of recognised CTCA specialists; and
- Establish quality assurance benchmarks in relation to the performance of CT Coronary Angiography
