Description:
In Ireland, there are presently no specific professional standards for the education, training or maintenance of competence of Clinical Engineers graduates or technicians. Clinical Engineers play a critical role in the hospital environment ensuring appropriate selection, performance, management, maintenance and development of medical devices and equipment This proposal aims to address the deficit in professional standards for the education, training and maintenance of competence of Clinical Engineers. This document provides the background to Clinical Engineering in the Republic of Ireland. It gives an insight into public sector career grades and pathways through them ·as well as opportunities for professional development. It identifies client issues requiring resolution so that the profession can continue to develop and it notes external factors which must be considered. This proposal deals with education, training and professional registration for engineering graduates and technicians working in Biomedical Engineering.
