MRI Safety

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with key organisations within the field of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), listed below, to develop a new elearning programme on MRI safety.

Structured around the needs of specific MR safety roles, this new programme explores the hazards associated with the use of MRI equipment and offers guidance on best practice to protect patients and staff.

The MRI Safety elearning includes 5 courses, each linked to a different MR safety role as described in theĀ MHRA guidelines for MRI safety.

  • MR Authorised Person (Non-MR Environment) (coming soon)
  • MR Authorised Person (MR Environment)
  • MR Authorised Person (Supervisor)
  • MRI clinicians (coming soon)
  • Referrers (coming soon)

On completion of the programme, learners will be able to download a certificate of completion and a record of their activity to add to their CPD portfolio.

For more information and to access the new courses, please visit the MRI Safety programme page.
