The IPEM/UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) joint webinar saw the unofficial launch of the UKAS Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering (MPACE) Accreditation Programme.
This programme brings together the work undertaken with the Improving Clinical Engineering and Clinical Science Services (iCEPSS) and BS70000 into a formal accreditation programme.
Around 125 people registered for the webinar, with 91 joining for some or all of the webinar. This was way beyond expectations and feedback has been positive. The webinar was recorded and can be accessed here. It provides details of the role of accreditation, a brief history of the development of MPACE, iCEPSS and BS70000, as well as the current UKAS activities and proposals for pilot site recruitment and scopes of practice.A number of questions were raised during the presentation and these, together with formal responses, will shortly be available on the UKAS website.
The IPEM webpage on MPACE has also been updated with the latest on the accreditation programme.
