The Canberra Times quotes well known laser expert Dr Mary Dingley as saying that in Western Australia, Queensland and Tasmania licensing is a well established precaution whereas almost anyone can own and operate one in other states and territories, including the ACT. This follows a report where a number of ACT patients have made complaints about the treatment experience and outcomes of their laser skin treatments. We know that quality, accredited education is a part of the patient solution. At Bravura Education we encourage all therapists regardless of state/territory legislation to complete one of our accredited, online laser safety courses.
