    Abstract

    This project will determine how well prepared graduates from the BSc (Hons.) Diagnostic Radiography programme were to undertake their role as a newly qualified diagnostic radiographer. Two consecutive cohorts will be audited separately one which experienced a traditional curriculum and the other an integrated PBL curriculum. A survey instrument and semi-structured interviews will be used to collect data six months after graduates have qualified. All the new graduates and a work supervisor at each graduate’s workplace will complete the instrument. A sample of the graduates and work supervisors will be interviewed to enable richer data to be obtained about the graduate’s preparedness. Quantitative analysis will be undertaken looking for statistical significant differences between scores of graduates and work supervisors for each cohort. Qualitative interview data will be analysed using a phenomenological approach. Data will be triangulated to identify and explain any trends in the results. The anticipated outcomes are that the data will identify areas of strength and weakness in the graduate’s preparedness for practice. This information can then be used to optimise the curriculum.
