EFRS collaborates on virtual conference on COVID-19

By AuntMinnieEurope.com staff writers

June 18, 2020 -- The European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) is partnering with the University of Liverpool and related organizations in the U.K., Canada, and Australia on a global virtual conference focusing on how simulation can be utilized for radiographer training during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Set to be held on 24 June, the free conference will discuss the potential role of simulation resources, techniques, and placements as temporary methods for clinical training during COVID-19 restrictions, according to the organizers. Simulation experts and researchers from around the world will share ideas for how simulation could provide some capacity to teach clinical skills in the absence of clinical placement for the duration of the pandemic restrictions.

"Clinical skills training for students in diagnostic imaging, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine has been severely impacted during the global pandemic, with the cessation of many clinical placement opportunities. Future disruption seems likely with social distancing and severely limited access to clinical departments," they noted.

The event will be split into two sessions held in the early morning and late afternoon, with a three-hour gap in between. Registration can be completed at the conference's EventBrite page. More information can also be found on Twitter.
