RaNGer Study Radiographer Led Approach to NG Tube Error Reduction

Feeding through a misplaced nasogastric tube (NGT) is an avoidable yet frequent cause of patient harm. Chest X-rays (CXRs) are often used to exclude misplacement of an NGT prior to use but these x-rays may be misinterpreted by non-radiology physicians who may have little experience in this area.

Radiographers are a constant within any CXR NGT assessment pathway and may play a key role inimproving patient safety through identification of misplaced NGTs on CXRs. This study will assess radiographers base-line competence and confidence regarding NGT radiograph interpretation. This project has been funded by Health Education England London. Use of a web based clinical simulation platform for medical imaging has been donated by RAIQC.

This package includes image evaluation questions exclusively for participants in the study.
