New courses added to the MRI Safety elearning programme

 

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 3 new courses for the MRI Safety programme.

 

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

 

The 3 new courses are linked to  different MR safety roles as described in the MHRA guidelines for MRI safety.

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

 

They complement 2 existing courses within the programme – MR Authorised Person (MR Environment) and MR Authorised Person (Supervisor).

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.
