2021 Leading the Way -
Advanced Practice in Medical Radiation Practice

The concept of advanced practice implies working beyond the traditional scope of practice, grounded upon expert evidence-based knowledge with a view to improving service delivery including access, timeliness and quality of treatment for patients. An advanced practitioner is expected to demonstrate expertise across seven dimensions of practice; clinical leadership, evidence-based judgement, clinical expertise, scholarship and teaching, professionalism, communication and collaboration.

Leading the Way Virtual Issue

In line with the upcoming ‘Leading the way in Radiography Advanced Practice’ 3rd Biennial Global Conference, a series of previously published articles from the Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences have been collated. These articles showcase the ongoing commitment of medical radiation professionals to broaden their traditional scope of practice and can be read as a collection here.
