Competencies developed in European educational institutions for therapeutic radiographers working on the linear accelerator
Invitation and information letter
Dear participant,

The aim of this survey is to investigate competencies developed by educational institutions across Europe for Therapeutic Radiographers (TRs) practising on the Linear Accelerator.

The title “Therapeutic Radiographer” is going to be used in this study, since this is the title used in the UK (country leading the SAFE EUROPE project and where I am enrolled on the PhD programme). Other titles can be found, including "Radiation Therapist", "Radiotherapy Technologist", amongst others.

This research is of importance for all professionals since it will enable identification of gaps in competence at qualification between countries and against an agreed benchmark minimum standard of the EQF level 6.
Identifying gaps against the standards will enable education institutions to consider closing the gaps.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your participation.

If you have any questions about the study, please do not hesitate to contact me using the following contact details:

This research study is part of the SAFE EUROPE project and is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Sector Skills Alliances programme of the European Union [grant agreement 2018–2993/001-001]. It is also part of my PhD on "Education of Radiographers in Europe - An Assessment of the Competencies of Linear Accelerator Therapeutic Radiographers" at Ulster University in Belfast, UK.

This survey is the result of a collaboration between multiple partners of the SAFE EUROPE consortium, reflecting the importance given to the education of these professionals. The partners involved in the design and data collection were: Ulster University (UK), University of Malta (MT), European Federation of Radiographer Societies (Europe), Associação Portuguesa de Radioterapeutas (PT) and Towarzystwo Naukowe Techników Medycznych Radioterapii (PL).
