e-Learning sessions for radiographers, radiologists and breast clinicians now live

The National Breast Imaging Academy (NBIA) project is a collaborative, national, multidisciplinary initiative which encompasses a range of solutions to address the workforce shortage in breast imaging services.  These solutions include the establishment of a national centre of excellence for training, an innovative, online technology-enhanced learning platform, the NBIA Online and the development of high-quality training programmes for radiographers, radiologists and breast clinicians.

Due to the current pressures on the health and care workforce responding to Coronavirus (COVID-19) the NBIA team recognises the impact this is having on trainees and face to face learning.  Therefore, in response to this challenge the NBIA team has worked with e-LfH and accelerated the launch of some of the e-learning sessions to support the learning for radiographers, radiologists and breast clinicians.
