Access to Health Education England’s IRMER and MRI Safety training for chiropractors
Essential CPD for x-ray referrers
If you refer out for x-ray imaging to private service providers, such as Ramsay Health, Spire etc, you will have found that, as an x-ray referrer, you need to provide evidence that you are up-to-date with your IRMER training. It is common policy to require up-to-date completion certificates from high quality training such as the relevant ‘e-IRMER’ modules on Health Education England’s e-LFH (electronic learning for health) platform.
Essential CPD for chiropractors with x-ray facilities
In the best interests of patient safety, remaining up-to-date with all aspects of IRMER is essential for chiropractors who have in-house x-ray facilities.
Essential CPD for MRI referrers
If you refer patients for MRI, you may need to show service providers that you are up-to-date with ‘MRI Safety Training for Referrers’, which is also hosted on the e-LFH platform.
Access to e-LFH is normally limited to NHS staff, however I am pleased to advise that the Royal College of Chiropractors has arranged access for chiropractors to the relevant e-IRMER and MRI Safety for Referrers learning modules on the e-LFH platform. This high-quality training is provided free of charge to RCC members and represents another valuable addition to the RCC membership package.
The same training is also available via the RCC for non-members at a cost of £115. This provides access until 1 March 2024. If you wish to make use of this essential resource, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain your access details.
