Unit of Competency HLTAHA026 - Support the medical imaging professional
Description
Employability Skills
Learning Outcomes and Application This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to conduct activities essential for the functioning of a medical imaging environment, including, specialist cleaning, stock maintenance and set-up requirements.This unit applies to workers assisting a medical imaging professional in a hospital or community based setting. It does not equip a worker to perform medical imaging. All work should be performed under direction and supervision as determined by a medical imaging professional. The skills in this unit must be applied in accordance with Commonwealth and State/Territory legislation, Australian/New Zealand standards and industry codes of practice.
Duration and Setting X weeks, nominally xx hours, delivered in a classroom/online/blended learning setting.

All aspects of the performance evidence must have been demonstrated using simulation prior to being demonstrated in a therapeutic workplace under direction and supervision (direct, indirect, remote) as determined by the medical imaging professional.

The following conditions must be met for this unit:

use of suitable facilities, equipment and resources, including:

medical imaging equipment and guidelines

radiation management plan

PPE

modelling of industry operating conditions and contingencies, including provision of services to real people

Assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015/AQTF mandatory competency requirements for assessors.
