Training and Development for Radiographers’ Extended Roles

IES, along with the University of Hertfordshire, was commissioned by Skills for Health to examine 'extended role' activities undertaken by diagnostic radiographers. We profiled the extent and nature of training and development provided across the UK for these activities, and the extent to which training and CPD provision is mapped against external standards and/or accredited by external bodies. We also explored hospital policies relating to the recruitment of individuals with accredited and non-accredited training for extended role activities.
