|The Australia and New Zealand Medical Radiations Research Network presents:|
Conversations in Research Webinar 12
Topic: COVID-19 Impact on practice
Tuesday 9 November 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the lives of millions of people globally since early 2020. Whilst isolation, distancing, and reduced movement have effectively reduced the spread of the virus, these are difficult to implement for essential medical services such as imaging, radiation therapy and education in these settings.
This ‘Conversations in Research’ webinar will explore the research into the flexible practices developed to ensure the safety of patients, supportive care of people, students and staff whilst continuing to provide medical imaging and radiation therapy services. Diagnostic Radiographer education providers have also considered the student experience in a COVID-19 impacted learning environment. We bring together a panel of national and international researchers that have published in the field.
