Course Description

Ionizing radiation has many clinical applications and is categorized into diagnostic and therapeutic uses. The administration could be internal or external, based on the categorization. External administration is in the form of X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, mammography, etc. it could also include use of contrast to improve the radiographic images. Internal uses include administration of radiopharmaceuticals for clear nuclear imaging in nuclear medicine.

Along with understanding the technical aspects, being compassionate towards your patients is also important.
e-IRMER is an interactive online training resource supporting the training of NHS healthcare professionals in the Ionizing Radiation (Medical Exposures) Regulations 2000 (amended 2006) (IR(ME)R).

Delivered in partnership by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) and e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH), e-IRMER is a training resource covering the following topics:

  • Interpretation of the regulations
  • The basic physics associated with ionizing radiations
  • The risks associated with ionizing radiations
  • The radio-biological effects of exposure to ionizing radiations
  • The production of X-rays and nuclear emissions
  • The applications of ionizing radiations for both diagnostic imaging and therapeutic treatments
  • Practical examples of how to reduce patients’ exposures to ionizing radiations
  • Practical examples of the roles of duty holders

e-IRMER provides easy access to learning materials, and through formative and summative assessments, allows the learner to both develop competence and demonstrate compliance with the regulatory requirements of the IR(ME)R.
