Hi Jim - 
Direct Supervision is where a pathologist would be standing over your shoulder watching you actually gross the specimen.
Indirect Supervision is where he/she would review the gross, perhaps in the written report, though the pathologist did not actually observe you performing the actual gross dissection.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [Histonet] CAP QUESTION

Does anybody have an explanation of what it means by direct vs indirect
supervision of a pathologist for non-pathologists performing gross
descriptions?  I realize you have to document what type of specimens
that non-pathologists are grossing but have always wondered what the
difference is between direct and indirect.  I would appreciate any
feedback of others on how they have interpreted this question.
