SCoR Research Network
The Society and College of Radiographers has created a new research network and Google Group to encourage research within the profession.
Dr Heidi Probst, Reader in Radiotherapy at Sheffield Hallam University, is helping to set up the network.
She explains: “We know that research from the radiography profession lags behind that of other AHPs. We have substantially fewer PhD qualified staff than some of our AHP colleagues as a profession and a recent survey to identify research capacity in radiotherapy highlighted a number of barriers that can limit the opportunity of radiographers to increase research activity and a significant capacity deficit exists.
“The research network has been launched to bring together radiographers from both diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy to provide the opportunity to share activities and practices that have enabled research to happen, to facilitate the opportunity for individuals to make connections and collaborate on new projects, to enable the development of new research ideas and to grow a community of practice in research,” adds Heidi.
“We also know that there is an increasing number of radiographers in research roles, or starting doctoral study and the research network offers the opportunity for experienced researchers to support and encourage those new to research.”
The network will have two chairs to ensure that imaging and therapeutic radiographers are represented. It will aim to have at least one face-to-face meeting, alongside discussions on Google Groups.
The network is open to HCPC registered radiographers and ultrasonographers and nuclear medicine technologists, on the appropriate voluntary register.
