Professional capabilities for medical radiation practice

The released revised Professional capabilities for medical radiation practice (the professional capabilities) came into effect on 1 March 2020.

The revised professional capabilities recognise the various roles that a practitioner undertakes in practice including the professional role, the partner in care, the communicator and collaborator, the educator, and the medical radiation safety expert.

The Board asks that practitioners:

  • read through the professional capabilities for medical radiation practice
  • identify any areas where you may not meet the minimum requirements, and
  • establish and implement a plan for continuing professional development (CPD) that addresses those gaps.

To help explain the new professional capabilities the Board have developed some short videos, two are below and there will be more to come.

The Board has also published additional resources (below) to support practitioners and stakeholders to understand the revised professional capabilities.
