Event description

Description

The Yorkshire Imaging Collaborative (YIC) would like to invite you to a Networking Event to showcase the Transformation Programmes’ plans, provide an opportunity to ask questions and to develop and take forward its work on common practices through the development of Special Interest Groups.

The intention is to assemble a representative regional group of experts to influence and improve radiological practice around a range of clinically important subjects, and difficult topics in relation to statutory targets such as cancer and stroke. The groups will support the Yorkshire Imaging Collaborative by delivering expected benefits to patients of a high-quality radiology service, independent of location of care within the collaborative.

Within the YIC, a core philosophy is to streamline practices and pathways for radiology. This requires a commitment towards the same pathways, protocols and documentation for many areas of our work. The clinical experts are best positioned to understand the details of these aspects and both develop, agree and own such pathways and protocols. Each Special Interest Group will agree and promote YIC regional imaging protocols, pathways and other key practices.

It is anticipated that the areas of authorship responsibility for the Special Interest Groups would be:

- Imaging protocols (with invited support from medical physics where applicable)

- Patient preparation advice documents

- Post procedural documents

- Procedural safety documents

- Imaging pathways (in cooperation with clinician member)

- Reporting standards

- Potential areas for advance in practice for radiographers

Dr Louise Hattingh from BTHFT is in the process of establishing the Paediatrics Special Interest Group, and we believe the following Special Interest Groups will be needed, however, at this early stage there will be scope for movement in the final makeup of the groups:

Paediatrics; Urology; MSK / Trauma / Rheumatology; Head & Neck, Neuro; Chest / Cardiac CT; Gynaecology; Haematology & Oncology / CUP; Gastro GI; Nuclear Medicine; Breast and Vascular IR.

In order to generate interest and establish the Special Interest Groups, we would like to invite you to a networking event on the evening of Tuesday 22 January 2019, 1800-2000. The agenda for the evening will be:
