Personal Dosimetry 2020

6 February 2020

Manchester

Organised by IPEM's Radiation Protection Special Interest Group

It has been a period of great change in the world of radiation protection, with new regulations such as the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 coming into force. The reduction of the eye dose limit and greater emphasis on cooperation between employers required many of us to review the personal monitoring arrangements in our areas. 

The Guidance on the Personal Monitoring Requirements for Personnel Working in Healthcare by Colin Martin et al was published in late 2018 and gave specific recommendations for different staff groups across all modalities. This meeting will be an opportunity to hear talks from invited speakers specialising in nuclear medicine, diagnostic radiology and radiotherapy as well as to share research and examples of good practice.

Radiation Protection Advisers (RPAs), Radiation Protection Officers (RPOs), Medical Physicists in any specialism (including trainees) with an interest in radiation protection
