Radiation Protection Training Course
19 Apr 2021 - 23 Apr 2021 • The Royal Marsden Hospital, London , United Kingdom
Organised by the Joint Department of Physics of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and The Institute of Cancer Research.
The course provides the theoretical background and training necessary for the radiological protection requirements of both ionising and non-ionising radiations used in hospitals. The main four-day module (Monday to Thursday) covers the following subject areas: radiation risks, dosimetry, biological effects, instrumentation, legislation, transport, emergencies, and safe practice in the medical uses of ionising radiations. The additional (optional) 1 day module on Friday covers non-ionising radiation protection. As well as lectures, there will be small informal workshop sessions covering a range of practical issues. The course is at a level suitable for hospital physicists working in the field of radiation protection or those who want to expand their knowledge in this field. It is particularly suitable for those wishing to become Radiation Protection Advisers (RPA) and covers the Basic Underpinning Knowledge (Basic Syllabus) as set out in Annex 3 of the HSE statement on Radiation Protection Advisers.
The course is an IPEM approved external short course.
