The research developed on the WPs numbered 3 to 8 identified the competencies developed in Europe as well as those that are underdeveloped.
From this research, recommendations were published to improve education of therapy radiographers but also suggestions will be made in regards to curricula for CPD activities with the aim of tackling the gaps identified.
The results of the research WPs 3 to 8 were fed into the WP10 where webinars were developed, recorded and made available as open access to all radiographers.
WPs 1 and 2 were related to management and quality assurance of the project. WP9 consisted of 4 radiotherapy conferences where the SAFE EUROPE results were presented. WP11 consisted of submiting the results of the studies to ESCO, to update the profession’s description. WP12 was an impact WP focusing on ensuring that the results reach the decision-makers and all stakeholders.
The webinars were, therefore, include the missing gaps in regards to:
The study aimed to evaluate the competencies of the radiographers at an EU level.
This Work Package was built on this knowledge by assessing the perception of European stakeholders.
The aim of this work package was to investigate and identify the perceptions of patients/service users on the role and skills of TR.
In this work package, we started off with a review of existing TRs’ educational programmes.
The aim of this work package was to identify the possible gaps in the profile of a therapy radiographer.
The aim of this work package was to identify the competencies required to practise advanced roles.
Dissemination of the results obtained from all work packages had the ultimate aim of ensuring the knowledge acquired during this research reaches all the interested parties.
The research developed on the WPs numbered 3 to 8 identified the competencies developed in Europe as well as those that are underdeveloped. Webinars were created to close those gaps.
