An internationally recognised discussion group which considers medical radiation sciences research has chosen to highlight work carried out at the University of Cumbria for the second time this year.
The #MedRadJClub is a journal club which uses the social media platform Twitter to consider work carried out around the world. Supported by the top three medical radiation sciences professional journals (Canada’s Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences, NZ/Australia’s Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences and the UK’s Radiography) articles are chosen from each of the three journals and discussed each month.
The journal club is an opportunity for radiographers worldwide to use social media to facilitate discussion of current topics, explore international collaboration and to promote evidence-based practice.
This month research work, which examined how children are cared for while undergoing MRI procedures, will be the lead discussion topic. The study was conducted by senior lecturer in research methods and social psychology Dr Paul Miller, senior lecturer colleague Dr Lisa Booth and researchers in Norway.
“To have two pieces of work considered is itself a big compliment and we’re delighted to be taking part,” Dr Miller said. ” Anyone can join or watch the discussion on the day – as the Twitter feed shows, debates can usually be pretty lively!”
The forum takes placed on November 21 – details are here:
