    Summary

    SCoR is pleased to bring you this further implementation guidance to its Education and Professional Development (EPD) strategy (CoR 2002), and Education and Professional Development: Moving Ahead (CoR 2003). This document recognises that for patients, staff and employers to benefit from the opportunities outlined in the EPD strategy, continual development, growth and embedding of professional skills and culture is a priority. Additionally, the profession must work closely with employers to identify adequate resources to support development opportunities and to ensure that effort and skills are properly rewarded. It also recognises that the strategy cannot be delivered without the support of the profession as a whole.

  • Radiographic Staffing: Short Term Guidance: 2005 Benchmark for Standard Core Functions within Radiotherapy

    SUPERSEDED AND ARCHIVED – View the latest version Date published: 1 December, 2005 Topics: Managers, Radiotherapy ISBN: 1 871101 30 1

    Summary

    Within this first document is a benchmarking figure to assist managers locally in reaching a baseline-staffing number. Once this baseline has been established locally, the Society & College believes that more comprehensive staffing models, based upon greater skill mix, will then be able to be developed at the local level. It is anticipated that these models will be based upon skills mix across the entire radiotherapy workforce. In the longer term the baseline figure within the document may require adjustment to take account of these developments and the changing role that therapeutic radiographers will have within the service.
