A course designed for Radiation Protection Experts (RPEs) working in the medical field, in compliance with Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom (BSS), is being run as part of the European Network on Education and Training in Radiation Protection (ENETRAP III).
Successful course participants will be able to evidence that they have the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes (KSAs) to provide expert radiation protection advice to employers, staff and members of the public in the medical fields of radiotherapy, diagnostic & interventional radiology and nuclear medicine.
The Medical Module will consist of an on-line phase and will be followed by a one week face-to-face session. This session will consist of a number of lectures and workshops designed to ensure the KSA requirements are satisfied.
Before the face-to-face session, registered course participants will need to provide portfolios covering:
- the regulatory framework measurement of radiation dose
- dose rates and contamination measurements
- calculation of potential exposures
- hazard and risk assessments
- control procedures (including the zoning of radiation areas)
- personal and environmental dosimetry
Participants will be provided with detailed KSAs to fulfil their portfolio during the on-line phase. These portfolios will be discussed in the face-to-face session to provide opportunities for improvements and reflective thinking. The successful candidates will have fulfilled the required contents for the portfolios and passed both an oral assessment on their portfolio and a multiple choice examination at the end of the face-to-face session.
Online phase available from september 2015
