Is this course for me?

This is designed for health professionals who use diagnostic tests in their current role, including diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers, physiotherapists, nurses, and advanced nurse practitioners. It will allow you to develop and apply skills to recognise normal and abnormal appearances of diagnostic imaging, and 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 structured format, enabling you to make sound clinical judgements. You must have completed Ionising radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (IR(ME)R) training. You should be currently working towards an Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) role for credentialing or in an advanced practitioner role that requires this from your employer. You must be registered with either the NMC or HCPC and currently working in a health care setting.

Module Description

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
