ISRRT Research Award 2015 - Calls for Grant Application
Posted 23rd January 2015

Theme: The Role of the Radiographer (Radiological Technologist) in the Justification of Medical Exposures

The aim of the ISRRT Research Award is to promote research that helps improve the standards of delivery and practice of medical imaging and radiotherapy as well as to encourage evidence-based practice. The ISRRT Research Award was set up in 2009 and a research proposal was funded the first time in 2010. We are now inviting applications for the Research Award for 2015.

Background

  • “Employing radiation in medicine has to involve a careful balance between the benefits of enhancing human health and welfare, and the risks related to the radiation exposure of people…”
  • “There is a need for a holistic approach…to address existing and emerging challenges; and leadership, harmonisation and co-ordination of activities and procedures at an international level.”(Joint Position Statement by the IAEA and WHO, 2013)*
  • Radiographers play a major role in radiation protection in medical exposures particularly in the process of optimisation. The Radiographers role in justification is extremely important for the entire healthcare team and of course the patient. The Radiographer is the first member of the team to receive the examination request from the referring clinician and is the person who delivers the radiation dose.

The theme of the research project is, “The Role of the Radiographer in the Justification of Medical Exposures”.  You are invited to submit a research proposal related to this very important topic.

The grant is £2,500.00 for a one-year project and £5,000.00 for a two-year project.

Applications must be submitted on or before 30 April 2015.

Full details and an application form can be found at www.isrrt.org or by directly contacting isrrt.yule@btinternet.com.

Announcement of results: End of July 2015
