IRMER update 2020 25 Sep 2020

Building on the success of previous BIR IR(ME)R updates, this half-day virtual event provided an invaluable multi-disciplinary forum to hear about current practice and the direction of flow of IR(ME)R. You will learn about the new guidance on diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of the regulations.

It provided the opportunity to consider the issues that came out of planning for COVID-19 (both from and RPA and radiographer’s perspective) and what happens when our inspectors are inspected.

Educational aim:

  • To provide information on the changing shape of IR(ME)R and how it is to be applied in practice; including an opportunity to discuss the wider sphere of influence and involvement of IRMER
