Radiology departments rely more and more upon radiographic assistants but there are limited training opportunities. To address this, Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust ran a study day.
The content covered the role of the assistant, patient centered care, infection control, how x-rays are produced and radiation safety, the role of a chaperone, data protection, ultrasound, CT and MR overviews and moving and handling equipment.
BHT intends to repeat the course and already has a waiting list.
