Would you like to attend a professional conference outside the UK and present your work but need some financial help?

If so, don’t delay; apply for an Overseas Conference Grant (the CoR Legacy Fund).

The grant supports members of the Society of Radiographers, or a small team, to travel overseas and present the findings of their research and/or service evaluation as an oral paper at an international conference.

Applications for funding to the value of £1000 will be considered. For exceptional applications, more may be available.

Four radiographers have secured funding already this year. Three of the successful applicants will present their papers at the Leading the Way International Radiographer Advanced Practice Conference LTWRAP this October in Toronto. These include:

Dr Nick Woznitza, consultant radiographer, Homerton University Hospital, whose paper ‘Lung cancer: the changing role of the radiographer’, explores novel ways advanced practitioner radiographers can support lung cancer pathways.

Morag Howard, a senior lecturer at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, will present  ‘Radiographer-led discharge (RLD) in a minor injuries hospital’. She argues that RLD enhances inter-professional working and is a constructive advanced practice for radiographers making best use of their skills in line with government initiatives.

Dr Yatman Tsang, consultant radiographer, Mount Vernon Hospital. His presentation, ‘The impact of a consultant radiographer on stereotactic radiotherapy service’, centres on how a consultant can streamline the patient pathway, while delivering gold standard services in more resourceful and innovative ways.

The fourth applicant awarded a grant was Karen Chappell, MRI research radiographer, Imperial College London, who presented her paper ‘Visualisation and quantification of collagen fibers in a partially torn ligament using magic angle imaging’, at the Joint Annual Meeting for the Society of MR Radiographer and Technologists, the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, and the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology), in Paris.

Apply today, the deadline of 1 October is fast approaching!
