Work Packages

More information on work packages within the project.


The research developed on the WPs numbered 3 to 8 will identify the competencies developed in Europe as well as those that are underdeveloped.

From this research, recommendations will be suggested to improve education of therapy radiographers but also suggestions will be made in regards to curricula for CPD activities with the aim of tackling the gaps identified.

These curricula will be fed into this WP where webinars will be developed and made available as open access to all radiographers.

The webinars will, therefore, include the missing gaps in regards to:

  • Skills of the linear accelerator radiographer (UoM)
  • Skills identified by the patients (UU)
  • Circular economy (green-skills) (UoM)
  • Digital skills for the radiographer (IPOP)
  • Advanced practice (EFRS)

WP3 - Competencies

The study aims to evaluate the competencies of the radiographers at an EU level.

WP4 - European Stakeholders

This Work Package will build on this knowledge by assessing the perception of European stakeholders.

WP5 - Patient Perceptions

The aim of this work package is to investigate and identify the perceptions of patients/service users on the role and skills of TR.

WP6 - Circular Economy

In this work package, we will start off with a review of existing TRs’ educational programmes.

WP7 - Digital Skills

The aim of this work package is to identify the possible gaps in the profile of a therapy radiographer.

WP8 - Advanced Practice

The aim of this work package is to identify the competencies required to practise advanced roles.

WP9 - Dissemination of results

Dissemination of the results obtained from all work packages has the ultimate aim of ensuring the knowledge acquired during this research reaches all the interested parties.

WP10 - Webinars

The research developed on the WPs numbered 3 to 8 will identify the competencies developed in Europe as well as those that are underdeveloped.
