This module is designed to be of particular interest to diagnostic radiographers who are currently working in the area of medical imaging and who wish to enhance their knowledge so as to contribute to improve medical imaging services.
It is designed to support healthcare professionals develop their knowledge, understanding and apply research informed learning to international health communities to inform health service practice and delivery.
Students will use a learning opportunity undertaken at conference, short course, study day or distance learning course , to focus on a topic that is currently relevant to clinical medical imaging practice.
The student may choose to review and evaluate an aspect of current practice, explore and report on a recent change in practice, or develop and reflect on new clinical skills or services. The role of medical imaging in the patient pathway may also be considered and this should be reflected in the content of the short course. Relevant published research and literary evidence will be critically appraised to determine the likely impact of developments on clinical practice.
The role of higher education within the UK is not only to develop the learning and critical thinking skills of students but to provide students such as yourself with the opportunity to study for an award which will support your current and future career prospects within a dynamic and evolving healthcare environment.
