Publication: Competency-based education for training of diagnostic radiographers in percutaneous nephrolithotomy procedure in the operating theatre - An initial experience
Effective teamwork in the operating theatre (OT) is critical for improving safety of health care. However, newly qualified radiographers often lack confidence in supporting procedures within this challenging environment. This commentary focuses on our experience in introducing a competency-based tutorial educational session to augment apprenticeship learning for radiographers supporting percutaneous nephrolithotomy procedure in the OT. All newly qualified radiographers were invited to attend the 45 minutes face-to-face interactive educational sessions, which consists of core theory components, case-based learning and quiz. The core learning outcome of the competency-based tutorial educational session was established through a need-analysis. Our initial experience suggested that competency-based educational session was well-received by the participating radiographers and can be useful in augmenting apprenticeship learning.
