Improving the Entry-to-Practice Education of Radiographers

Publication Date May 20, 2022

Abstract

Radiographers are essential to the quality of medical care and the radiation safety of patients. The importance of education in the preparation for practice cannot be understated. Multiple reports have indicated that, despite its vital nature, there is little global consensus on the educational requirements for entry-to-practice. The ISRRT recognizes that substantial differences exist in content, duration, quality, political support, and resources of the education and training available to student radiographers. Evidence for this worldwide heterogeny is presented from several highly respected international healthcare organizations. The negative impact of these inconsistencies on the graduate, the profession, and public health are outlined. Root causes for the situation are discussed. Important suggestions for transformational change are proposed. The chapter concludes with a call for the development of international accreditation standards that would formally set and assess entry-to-practice educational programs to ensure academic excellence, patient safety, and quality healthcare.
