This module enables you to study the principles of patient centred care and discuss the applications in the context of Radiography. It will offer you some background knowledge on all key issues on patient centred care and how these can be applied in radiography through optimised imaging technique, customised communication skills and appropriate use of specialised equipment. This is tailored to address examples of the needs of different patient population within radiography and the module heavily weighs in towards the applications of patient centred care, offering some theoretical background

For those students whose first language is not English the following qualification is also required:
You’ll be taught through lectures and online discussions, supplemented by self-directed study using relevant scientific and grey literature.
Your lectures will be taught online alongside other postgraduate Radiography students. For the online discussions you will have the chance to learn from charity officers’ sharing of best practice and patients’ genuine experiences and ask them questions about the impact of their condition in their everyday life and their patient identity with this condition and how their experience could be improved within the medical Imaging scope of practice. You will also be encouraged to use class discussions in the online forum to interact with your colleagues and understand the diversity of opinions in this contemporary topic.
Formative feedback: you will receive formative feedback verbally on your suggestions for patient centred care techniques using specific case studies in the classroom online discussion.
You’ll be assessed by a written essay on a case study of your choice as well as an online discussion and engagement with the group on key topics of patient centred care equivalent to minimum of five online forum posts.
