This project investigated whether a lack of standardised MRI safety education in the NHS was considered, by a sample of the UK MRI workforce, to create a potential risk to service users and staff. A survey of more than 100 MRI staff was carried out to identify whether there is a need for a national policy of minimum levels of MRI safety training to exist within the NHS. Various aspects of respondents’ experience and practice were explored to find out if they had witnessed MRI incidents; if incidents were always reported; whether standardising MRI safety education would improve safety practice and, if so, what form a training resource should take.
