Why Become a Member?

Joining the IIRRT offers a number of benefits:

Representation in the workplace.

The institute have a network of workplace representatives elected nationwide who can offer members advice and assistance in professional and career matters. The IIRRT also lobbies both nationally and regionally ensuring that members have access to development opportunities to advance their skills and professional competence.

Representing Radiographer’s/Radiation Therapists interests at a national level.

The IIRRT proactively represents the interests of Radiographers and Radiation Therapists (RTTs) at the governmental level by providing representatives that sit on committees and boards. This ensures our professional contribution to healthcare is recognised at the highest level.

Professional indemnity insurance

The Institute offers members optional access to a comprehensive professional indemnity insurance scheme to protect members at work. Currently, this is with Glennon Insurance and details of the policy can be found here. The IIRRT have recently been able to update the details of this insurance to provide additional cover for legal representation to cover any fitness to practice hearings that members may be obliged to attend as part of the new Statutory Registration scheme by CORU.

Continued Professional Development

The Institute is committed to giving Radiographers and Radiation Therapists every assistance in achieving their individual and collective CPD aspirations, through the organising and funding of appropriate educational events as well as online material for its members, designed to keep you informed and improve your skills.

  • Discounted rates for educational and CPD activities: Members benefit from significantly reduced rates for attendance at the Annual National Conference.
Access to personal electronic CPD Portfolio'My Rad CPD'
  •  provides a number of tools that enable you to capture online your views of your current position and what are your future aspirations. You can then set activities that relate to how these future aspirations will be met. If you want to share your plan or the outcome of your activities with a peer or line manager, so that they can comment on your work, you are able to invite them to do so by e-mail. There is a section where you can capture details of your Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and link this to the IIRRT's competency framework for the profession. If you are asked to produce a report of your planning and CPD records perhaps by the regulator (CORU) or for a meeting with your line manager there is a reporting tool that enables you to choose the information you want to include in that report and print or e-mail it.  
Full access to the IIRRT website.

The website is a repository of Radiography and Radiation Therapy related information in Ireland and contains useful documents such as Best Practice Guidelines, regular news updates, a CPD channel which facilitates Radiographers and Radiation Therapists in accessing appropriate educational material, online applications for educational activities and conferences and Radaiocht online publications.
