A team of researchers are asking SoR members to take part in their new survey on a key patient care document.
The questionnaire is centred around the use of the ‘Patient Public and Practitioner Partnerships within Imaging and Radiography: Guiding Principles’ document, also known at the P4 Document.
As part of a College of Radiographers Industry Partnership Scheme research project, Professor Ruth Strudwick, Dr Aarthi Ramlaul, and Pam Shuttleworth are exploring the implementation of the P4 guidelines.
They said: “Calling all qualified and student radiographers who are involved in service delivery, service development, education and research. We would love to hear your views and experiences of involving patients and the public within the four domains of professional practice.
“We are conducting a project exploring the implementation of the SCoR’s 'Patient, Public and Practitioner Partnership within Imaging and Radiotherapy: Guiding Principles' (P4) document.
“This project has been funded by the College of Radiographers Industry Partnership Scheme (CoRIPS) and has ethics approval.
“The four domains are service delivery, service development, education and research.
“We would like to invite you to participate by completing a short questionnaire by clicking the link below. The link will take you to the questionnaire page where you will find participant information and the ethics approval details.”
The survey should take around 15 minutes to complete, participation is completely voluntary, and the researchers said there are no foreseeable risks associated with the project, but that respondents can withdraw from the survey at any time.
P4 is divided into four sections, each related to the key areas of radiography practice - service delivery, service development education, and research.
Each section contains core values, with authentic patient stories to cement the impact each value can have on patients, carers and the public.
