Course Director

Donna Dimond


Now in its twelfth year, this Study Day embraces current developments in the field of suspected Non-Accidental Injury/Suspected Physical Abuse imaging and joint publication by the Society and College of Radiographers and Royal College of Radiologists. It is designed to meet the specific needs of radiographers to consolidate and extend the knowledge and skills required to act effectively as a part of a multi-disciplinary team that deals with such cases.

Delivered by a former paediatric superintendent/advanced practice radiographer, now an experienced UWE Bristol senior lecturer alongside local dedicated paediatric radiographers and specialists (radiology, neuroradiology and emergency medicine consultants), the event takes the form of an online event with all sessions being recorded.

This course is CPD endorsed by the College of Radiographers.
