Course content

This course has been designed to support the advancing practice of radiographers in the field of paediatric imaging. Between March 2018 and February 2019, nearly 23.5 million X-ray examinations took place in England alone, with just over 2.8 million of these examinations being carried out on children between the ages of 0 and 14 (Dixon, 2019). It is therefore essential that staff are well prepared and possess the necessary knowledge and skills to support a positive experience for both the paediatric patient and their carers. The imaging of a paediatric patient often presents radiographers with a range of complex issues to consider. This course will allow you to develop your theoretical knowledge and your clinical experience and apply these to current practice. This will support the development of paediatric imaging within your department and equip you with skills and knowledge to evidence your role as a lead paediatric radiographer and advanced practitioner in paediatric imaging.
