News & Updates

The PARP, with the implementation of the Memorandum of Agreement with the Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (PNRI) and the Department of Health conducted a total of 8 training courses since 2010 towards building the competency of workers occupationally exposed to radiation in the field of industrial and dental X-rays. The PARP, as a first step, took the initiative to conduct these training events for the safety officers of industrial x-rays and dental x-rays in support of meeting the regulatory training requirements. These training courses are conducted regularly throughout the year.

The PARP Cebu Chapter continues to be an active partner of the PARP in furthering its goals and objectives towards enhanced radiation protection and safety practices through the conduct of trainings and seminars organized and conducted in the region. The Chapter held its successful Biennial Convention in January 14, 2011 with the theme “New Initiatives in Radiation Protection”.

Nationally, PARP maintained links with other professional societies like the Philippine College of Radiology, Philippine Radiation Oncology Society, Philippine Society of Nuclear Medicine, Philippine Organization of Medical Physicists, and Philippine Association of Radiologic Technologists, among others. Last December 2010, the National Training Course and Workshop on Prevention of Accidental Exposures in Radiotherapy was conducted by national and IAEA experts to review and discuss the lessons learned from accidental exposure in radiotherapy and the effective implementation of measures for the prevention of such accidents.

This year, PARP will hold its 14thth Biennial Convention in October 14-16, 2011 in continuing its commitment to better enhance the practice of radiation protection and safety in the country. The Convention which is in commemoration of the government’s Proclamation No. 425 “National Radiation Protection Week”, will be held in Westown Hotel, Iloilo City with the theme “Radiation Protection: Meeting New Challenges and Recent Technological Advances”
