A Robert Gordon University (RGU) lecturer has been elected to a senior role on a leading advisory group for nuclear medicine practice within the UK.
Radiography lecturer Amy Wareing (31) has been elected as Vice Chair of the Nuclear Medicine Advisory Group (NMAG) and will hold the position for the next four years.
NMAG’s advisory team is established within the Society and College of Radiographers, one of the oldest and most experienced radiography organisations in the world.
Amy, who is based at RGU’s School of Health Sciences, is the only Scotland-based representative within the group which meets bi-annually at the Society’s head office in Central London.
NMAG consists of a panel of carefully chosen experts who advise the organisation on the development of suitable policies and strategies to support nuclear medicine practice in the UK.
Amy is delighted with her appointment to vice chair of the group and aims to highlight the importance of a fully collaborative approach to care provision.
She said: “I’m very proud to be elected to this important role and look forward to focusing the breadth and depth of expertise of the group to develop innovative strategies to enable effective patient centred heath provision.”
NMAG is currently working on a number of projects to implement this, including a joint initiative with the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) to identify standards for education.
Other projects include the continued professional development of nuclear medicine practitioners, guidance on the provision of nuclear medicine hybrid imaging services and a major review of the Society's nuclear medicine policy and strategies.
