Radiographers engaged in advanced and consultant roles are advised to base their work within an agreed framework of practice, commonly known as a protocol. A protocol is an agreed and documented system which outlines how certain categories of patients are to be managed, and by whom. Whilst many variations in the terminology and layout of protocols may cause confusion, scrutiny of a range of protocols from different clinical centres suggests that they often adopt a similar approach to their content. This article explores the vital ‘‘ingredients’’ that make up a protocol for advanced practice, highlighting a range of good practice to minimise the risks to both the radiographer and patient.
