October 11th: Advanced Practice

After September’s International Radiographer Advanced Practice (LTWRAP) Conference at Sheffield Hallam, October’s paper focused on domains of consultant practice, specifically research. Is it essential to advanced/consultant practice, what happens when it’s not supported by the organisation or advanced practitioners disagree about the role of research in their practice?

Harris, R and Paterson, A. Exploring the research domain of consultant practice: Perceptions and opinions of consultant radiographers. Radiography. 2016; 22(1): 12-20.
