Posted on: September 30th, 2020 by Hannah Denness No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with the British Institute of Radiology (BIR) to update the Radiation Protection for Cardiology programme, in line with new IRR and IR(ME)R legislation.

The programme has been designed to raise awareness of the hazards associated with exposure to ionising radiation. It takes the latest changes in safety legislation into account and is aimed at cardiology trainees and will also benefit more experienced cardiologists.

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