Priorities for the Optimising MRI Pathways for Children Working Group

The priorities for all of the clinical working groups within the Operational Delivery Network are ultimately agreed by our group members. The priorities include ensuring that regional practice aligns to national standards, identifying and attempting to address regional variation in practice, and collaboration to ensure continuous service development at both a local and regional level. Over-arching priorities are set annually and are reviewed regularly at group meetings. The group will annually review its progress against their agreed priorities, and report back to their Network Board’s that are accountable.

Priorities identified via a regional survey of those who attended the ‘Awake MRI Share & Learn Event’ are:

• Develop a network of interested parties to share practice and collaborate on service development
• Develop a directory of shared resources (in progress here)
• Share local policies and guidelines
• Consider opportunities to develop best practice recommendations at a regional level
