Radiation Protection Course for Non-Radiology Doctors and Healthcare Professionals (GUH)
February 28, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm GMT
S.I. 256 2018 is concerned with the health protection of individuals against the dangers of ionising radiation in relation to medical exposures. Article 22.3 of S.I. 256 explicitly states that Practitioners and individuals to whom the practical aspects of medical radiological procedures are delegated to must have successfully completed training, including theoretical knowledge and practical experience in medical radiological practices and radiation protection, as prescribed by the Medical Council
This course will cover the material required in the legislation and is specifically aimed at nonradiologist doctors who may be directing investigations with ionising radiation. The course has been approved by the Faculty of Radiologists and is recognised by the Medical Council of Ireland. The names of attendees will be forwarded to the Medical Council for inclusion in their register. The Medical Council offers all course attendees who are on the general register of Medical Practitioners a certificate of attendance. See www.medicalcouncil.ie for more information.
The course is also of considerable benefit to nurses and other healthcare professionals who encounter ionising radiation in the workplace and will give a good introduction to the issues involved in radiation protection.
