Overview

This module aims to enable you to:

  • critically evaluate the Magnetic Resonance (MR) protocols used in clinical practice with respect to the evidence base in order to inform service delivery and practice policy
  • develop your ability to evaluate MR images within a structured and monitored experiential learning environment

The learning in the module will utilise the knowledge and understanding gained in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging module, which is a pre-requisite and apply it to your own clinical practice. Evidence-based content will be delivered by Faculty experts with support from the technical and clinical fields.

You will be encouraged to identify the evidence base and critique clinical practice and protocols. In the clinical workplace you will undertake clinical MRI examinations of a wide range of anatomical regions/systems for a variety of clinical indications, gaining experience of advanced practice where applicable.

Tutorials will be used to facilitate peer learning and sharing of information by students. Case scenarios will facilitate group discussion and enhance your confidence in debating and justifying imaging techniques.

This module is provided as part of this interdisciplinary Framework within the Faculty of Health Studies. The Framework enables students to create an individualised programme of study that will meet either their needs and/or the employers’ needs for a changing diverse workforce within a modern organisation.

The modules and academic awards are presented in areas representing employment practice or work based or clinical disciplines.

Whilst some students can build their own academic awards by choosing their own menu of module options, other students will opt for a named academic award. The Framework also provides the option for students to move from their chosen named award to another award if their job or personal circumstances change and they need to alter the focus of their studies. The majority of named awards also offer students, the option of choosing at least one module, sometimes more, from across the Faculty module catalogue enabling them to shape their award more specifically to their needs.
