Public Comment Invited for Respiratory Therapy & Polysomnography Proposed Rules

​New rules reflect changes in law regarding credentials for licensure.  Public comment invited.

HLO recruiting for public members for several boards

​Are you interested in getting involved with state service but unsure where to begin? Consider serving on one of Health Licensing Office's regulatory boards. You don't have to be a member of one of the regulated professions to serve. In fact, many of the openings are for public members. A public member is typically someone who represents a consumer's point of view (and has no conflicts of interest in the board's business). Serving on a volunteer citizen board is a great way to dip a toe into the waters of state service. Board members participate in the rulemaking process, helping enact the laws adopted by the legislature and getting a better sense of how government works on the state level.

Survey response required for RT and PT renewals

​​During the 2015 Legislative session, Senate Bill 230 was enacted, adding respiratory therapists and polysomnographic technologists to the list of health care professionals who must provide certain demographic and practice information prescribed by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to renew their license. This information is collected through an online survey that is sent directly to OHA. Currently other health care professionals, including licensed dietitians, who are required to provide this information pay a $2 fee annually, which is collected at the time of renewal. The most recent surveys can be found here: Respiratory Therapist survey and Polysomnographic Technologist survey.​
