Making a Difference
Ruth will be outlining her career as a Diagnostic Radiographer from her time as a Student to her current role as a Professor. She will interweave her experiences and talk about how she feels that Diagnostic Radiographers can ‘make a difference’ every day and how person-centred care is essential.
Ruth is Head of Allied Health Professions and Professor in Diagnostic Radiography in the School of Allied Health Sciences at the University of Suffolk.
Ruth is a Diagnostic Radiographer by background. She has been a Lecturer since 2003, and before that worked as Clinical Lecturer at The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust and as a Diagnostic Radiographer at The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust.
Ruth completed her professional doctorate in 2011 entitled ‘An ethnographic study of the culture in a Diagnostic Imaging Department’. She continues to be research active and her funded research focuses on radiography professional practice and education, and on service evaluation.
