University of East Anglia, Norwich
Is this course for me?
Students must have completed Ionising radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (IR(ME)R) training. Students should be working in an advanced practitioner role or working towards an advanced practitioner role. This module is suitable for those students who are currently working towards an Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) role for credentialing. Students must be registered with either the NMC or HCPC and currently working in a health care setting.
This module is designed for health professionals who use diagnostic tests in their current role, including diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers, physiotherapists, nurses, and advanced nurse practitioners. The module allows you to develop and apply skills to recognise normal and abnormal appearances of diagnostic imaging, have the ability to interpret laboratory investigations. By the end you will be able to synthesise clinical information commonly seen in health care settings with radiographic appearances, enabling you to describe the radiographic appearances in a written format.
What will I learn?
The learning objectives of this module are to:
1. To cover the principles of radiation, radiography, ultrasonography and emerging imaging techniques including magnetic resonance imaging and computer aided tomography.
2. Develop and apply skills to recognise normal and abnormal appearances of radiographic images. By the end you will be able to synthesise clinical information commonly seen in acute and emergency care, enabling you to describe the radiographic appearances in a structured format
3. Develop the skills of E.C.G interpretation
4. Develop the skills of laboratory medicine
The learning outcomes of this module are to:
1. Develop theoretical and practical knowledge of the radiographic diagnostic techniques employed in clinical practice and the significance of the relevant health and safety implications.
2. Make evaluative judgements on the technical outcomes from imaging procedures and report the findings accordingly
3. Reflect upon and make informed decisions about clinical practices consistent with accepted protocols and individual patient's needs
4. To have knowledge of what a medical image is and how does one type of image differ from another
5. To have the skills and knowledge to help diagnose and treat illness by interpreting medical images
6. To be able to interpret E.C.G’s
7. To understand tests of sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative results
8. To be able to interpret laboratory results
