Why should I take this course?

This micro skills course from NHS Heath Education England covers the basics of safe use of x-ray equipment for fluoroscopy (screening) and applies to such work in both theatres and specialist x-ray rooms. There is an additional session concerning specific issues relating to interventional techniques (including cardiac catheter insertion and pacing). It does not cover the use of mobile x-ray equipment for taking films, although the rules and what you have to do are much the same. It also does not cover any use of radioactive material in theatres. If you are required to work in such situations, you will receive specific training.

Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?

Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
Unless otherwise stated, certificates issued through Talisium are not qualifications of any formal assessment.

Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?

Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.
