This document outlines the issues surrounding interventional radiology nursing support, sets out models for nursing staff and describes the role of the interventional radiology nurse in the management of patients who are undergoing interventional radiology treatment. It has been created to emphasise the importance of nursing support in departments of clinical radiology and to be used by clinical radiologists in discussion with their hospital nurse managers and executive boards, to ensure that they understand the need for proper nursing support availability within individual departments.

This document replaces the second edition of Guidelines for Nursing Care in Interventional Radiology (BFCR(06)7), which is now withdrawn.

This document was reviewed by the Clinical Radiology Professional Support and Standards Board and the Clinical Radiology Faculty Board in 2017 and was retained in its current format.
