This course facilitates the extended role of the practitioner by encouraging the skills of reflection and analysis. This enables critical appraisal of current practice and the development of improvements in practice, improving service to the client and the effectiveness of ultrasound departments.
Who is it for?
This course may be undertaken by students completing a PgC/PgD/MSc in medical Ultrasound, or as a stand-alone course for qualified sonographers wishing to extend their scope of practice.
