RDGY30570 Radiography & Culture Across Europe

Academic Year 2022/2023

As part of the curriculum delivered during the Radiography Erasmus exchange programme, this module is designed with the aim of facilitating all students in appreciating aspects of culture and professional Radiography practice in different European countries.
In the Radiography strand, students are provoked to consider similarities and differences between the health services and Radiography professions in different countries, with focus on various aspects such as professional development and role, regulatory legislation, patient care and clinical research. The material will help visiting students prepare for their clinical placement during Erasmus.
In the Culture strand, students are invited to consider aspects of Irish heritage, identity, sport and music, and evaluate these against similar topics in other European countries.
You will develop broad appreciation of:
• the comparative development of Radiography in different countries;
• similarities and differences between Radiography in Ireland and in other countries;
• the Irish healthcare system and aspects of radiographic practice;
• the involvement of Irish radiographers in research both nationally and internationally;
• key elements of Irish culture and heritage compared with that of other countries;
• the place of Irish traditional music and sport in the national identity compared with those in other countries.
