OMH, OASAS, and NYS Education Department Office of Professions Joint Presentation on Professional Scope of Practice FAQs

May 9 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Since the sunset of the Social Work Exemption in June 2022, OMH and OASAS have worked to clarify the roles and activities professionals of various disciplines can perform in their settings. OMH and OASAS have collaborated with NYSED Office of Professions to present an overview of the scope of practice and licensing process for the professions most commonly employed in OMH and OASAS programs. This presentation will include information from the Office of Professions on the various professions’ allowable activities, supervisory requirements for licensure, exemptions that may be applicable to staff in OMH and OASAS settings, and tips for navigating the professional licensure or permit process. OMH and OASAS will review some of the common questions received from programs regarding scope of practice, demonstrate how to access the information to answer these questions, and provide examples of how this applies to the activities in their settings.

The slides from this presentation will be made available after the event, however, the presentation will not be recorded.

Date & Time: 5/9/24 from 1:30-3pm
