When using ionising radiation for medical diagnosis or treatment of patients, understanding of relevant radiation protection principles and issues is necessary. In Belgium, nurses and paramedical personnel are required to acquire knowledge for protecting the patient against the detrimental effects of ionising radiation by means of a vocational training course. The experience with, and challenges for this training course are presented here from a lecturer's point of view, together with a proposal for a future approach which harmonises the training content, its level and quality, according to European recommended standards.
