New Radiation Protection for Vascular Surgeons e-learning programme now live

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with the British Institute of Radiology (BIR) to develop a programme designed to raise awareness amongst the vascular surgery community of the hazards associated with exposure to ionising radiation.

The programme, which takes into account the latest changes in safety legislation, is aimed at vascular surgery trainees and will also benefit more experienced surgeons.

The eight elearning sessions include principles of ionising radiation, patient safety regulations and preoperative contrast imaging. Each session takes around 30 minutes to complete and includes assessment questions.

The course has been accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England for up to 4.0 CPD points.
