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)

In this section

WP3 - Competencies Developed in Education Institutions.

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

WP4 - Perception of European stakeholders on the linear accelerator radiographer competencies in view of the European market

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

WP5 - Assessment of patients’ perceptions of the educational requirements of therapy radiographers

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 - Understanding the importance and applicability of circular economy in radiotherapy and relevant aspects to include in radiographers’ educating

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

WP7 - Assessment of the digital skills required to practise the profession and to be included in therapy radiographers’ education

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

WP8 - Assessment of Advanced Practice for therapy radiographers in the National, European and International context

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

WP9 - Dissemination of results through conferences and professional meetings

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 - Results

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