CANCELLATION OF  REQUESTS FROM THE HPCSA CPD SECTION FOR CPD AUDITS PRIOR TO  2015

Please  refer  correspondence for submission of  CPD  portfolios prior to 2015   to the  HPCSA CPD Section for  cancellation.  Due to  technical  difficulties  with the HPCSA system all CPD  audit cases prior to 2015 were not  closed. This technical  glitch was recently rectified. In other  words CPD audits will  be from 2015 onwards ( e.g. 2015 and 2016).

ISRRT Chesney Research Fund.

January 3rd, 2017

Dear Council Members and Associate Members,

I am in the pleasant situation to announce to you all the ISRRT Chesney Research Fund.

Call for Grant Application 2017

Theme: Quality Assurance in Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy

The aim of the ISRRT Research Fund 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 Fund was set up in 2009 and a research proposal was funded the first time in 2010.

Starting 2016 to commemorate the Chesney sisters who left in their will a legacy to ISRRT we will name the ISRRT Research Award as the ISRRT Chesney Research Fund.

The theme of the 2017 award is the Quality Assurance in Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy: What are the possible roles of radiographers or Radiological Technologists or Radiation Therapists in quality assurance?

 

Around this theme, you and your colleagues are invited to submit a research proposal.

Bids may include new methodology and modification to standard protocols and procedures which may result in a sustainable or improved quality service in the respective discipline of medical imaging and radiation therapy. Applications with other themes are also welcome but priority will be given to applications following the proposed theme for 2017.

The grant is £2500 for 1-year and £5000 for 2-year projects. Full details of the Research Fund Guidelines and application form can be obtained from the CEO of ISRRT at ceo@isrrt.org. The closing date for submission of grant application is 30 April 2017. Funding decision will be announced by late July 2017.

I would be grateful if you could promulgate the invitation message to members of your societies. This call for application is also available in the ISRRT website.

Yours faithfully,

Dimitris Katsifarakis
