Description

In 1985 Dr. Lol Berman and Dr. Gerald de Lacey published the first description of a radiographer alert system in the U.K. See: Berman L, de Lacey G, et al. Reducing errors in the Accident Department; a simple method using Radiographers. BMJ 1985: 290 : 421-422.Subsequently, the Red Dot Alert scheme was introduced throughout the U.K.This one day course is designed so as to follow the basic principle that underpins the prize winning book: Accident & Emergency Radiology: A Survival Guide . . . viz: ”these images look normal to me, but – how can I be absolutely sure that I am not missing a subtle but clinically important abnormality?”Who Should Attend?Radiographers – who work in Hospitals that utilise the basic Red Dot Alert Scheme – and are looking for an introduction to plain film (trauma) assessment and evaluation.Radiographers who are considering taking up training / instruction as a future Reporting RadiographerWho is the course not designed for?Established Reporting Radiographers. Specifically, those Radiographers who are confident in their basic approach to assessing ED (trauma) radiographs.How is this one day course arranged?The day is divided into four periods. In the main these are anatomical divisions (eg Upper Limb, then Lower Limb . . . and so on).Each period commences with two or three short (eg 15 minute) lectures.The lectures are followed by cases analysis. Registrants, working in pairs, discuss & evaluate a set of images at workstations.The subsequent answer (and clarifications) session is constructed as an interactive tutorial.Questions, and the raising of any minor or major interpretation problems, are actively encouraged during the tutorials.Lead TeachersDr. Lol Berman, Addenbrookes’ Hospital and the University of CambridgeDr. Gerald de Lacey, Previously, Northwick Park Hospital, LondonDr. Simon Morley, University College Hospitals, LondonDr. Denis Remedios, Northwick Park Hospital, LondonFee IncludesAll refreshmentsExcellent lunchPrize quizOur Book: Accident and Emergency Radiology: A Survival Guide (3rd Edition 2014) will be available at a special course price.
