If you do not agree to these terms of use, please refrain from using the RCR e-learning hub.

    Information about the RCR e-learning hub

    The RCR e-learning hub is a web-based platform housing, or providing links to, a range of continuous professional development resources for clinical radiologists, clinical oncologists and other health care professionals.  It includes e-learning sessions, webinars, recorded lectures, useful articles and guidelines to read and reflect upon, self-assessment exercises and links to resources on other websites. Guidance on the number of CPD credits for completing individual sessions is described on each session.  It is up to the individual to judge whether they have truly earned the credits which they are claiming.

    Accessing the RCR e-learning hub

    Access to the RCR e-learning hub is permitted on a temporary basis, and the RCR reserves the right to withdraw or amend the service it provides on the RCR e-learning hub without notice (see below). The RCR will not be liable if for any reason the RCR e-learning hub is unavailable at any time or for any period.

    You must treat your member login details as confidential, and you must not disclose this information to any third party. The RCR has the right to disable any user identification code or password at any time, if in its opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these terms.

    You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the RCR e-learning hub. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access the RCR’s site through your internet connection are aware of these terms, and that they comply with them. 

    You must also comply with our Acceptable Use Policy in respect of any comments that you may post.

    Intellectual property rights

    All users are asked to respect the generosity of the contributors who have developed individual sessions. Whilst it is easy to copy material which appears on web sites, it is not legal to do so. The entire contents of the RCR e-learning hub are protected by copyright laws. The RCR is the owner of the copyright, except where otherwise indicated. The RCR e-learning hub is for your own personal educational use. Any other use requires the written permission of the RCR. All proprietary notices on any material downloaded from the RCR e-learning hub for personal educational use must not be changed or deleted. If the RCR is using copyrighted material inappropriately, copyright holders should contact us immediately.

    If the material from the RCR e-learning hub is used for personal educational purposes in your personal published or presented work, due acknowledgement must be given to any sources quoted and the RCR acknowledged. All copyright watermarks on any images must be left intact. Images and text may be used for other non-commercial purposes by express permission of the RCR only. Any excerpts used for personal educational purposes must be reproduced accurately and not be used in a derogatory manner or in a misleading context. No one may copy, distribute, show in public or create any derivative work from material found within or through the RCR e-learning hub unless properly licensed by the RCR to do so.

    You must not use the RCR e-learning hub for any purpose prohibited by these terms and conditions. You agree to use this site for lawful purposes only and also agree not to use the RCR e-learning hub in such a way that it would disable or impair any of the services and so restrict or inhibit the use of or enjoyment of the site by third parties.

    Reliance on resources and information posted

    Resources and information provided by the RCR or its members or Fellows and other materials or content posted on the RCR e-learning hub are based upon materials provided to the RCR by professionals in their field of work and the RCR cannot verify all of the materials. Where any part of any session is based upon an opinion, you should be aware that other professionals in the field may have a different opinion. There are also continuous advances in medical practice. When using information included in any session you must, therefore, consider such information in light of other professional guidance and medical advances. Accordingly you must make your own independent judgement in respect of the course of action that you take regarding your practice or patients as any action that you take in respect of your practice or patients is your responsibility and not the responsibility of the RCR. 

    It is solely your responsibility to evaluate the accuracy, completeness and usefulness of all information provided through the RCR e-learning hub.

    In using the RCR e-learning hub you shall comply with all your duties as a doctor or other health care professional and, without limiting those duties, if you become aware of anything relating to the RCR e-learning hub which would infringe or be contrary to your duty as a doctor or health care professional, you will advise us immediately by email to RCRLearning@rcr.ac.uk.

    Our liability

    E-learning sessions are provided without any guarantees, conditions or warranties (express or implied) as to their accuracy, quality, efficacy, completeness or fitness for a particular purpose. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the RCR shall not be liable to you whether in contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence), under statute or otherwise arising out of or in connection with any information and the RCR accepts no liability for any inaccuracy or error in any of the e-learning sessions and is making no promises in respect of any results that may occur as a result of you relying on any of the e-learning sessions.

    Nothing in these terms of use affects or restricts the RCR’s liability for death or personal injury caused to you by the RCR’s negligence, nor the RCR’s liability for fraudulent misrepresentation, nor any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

    Without prejudice to any other provision of these terms of use, you agree that the RCR shall have no liability to you in respect of any loss, liability or damage that you suffer as a result of or in connection with the death or personal injury of any person in respect of which you have relied upon any of the information provided in the RCR e-learning hub whether such death or personal injury was caused by the RCR’s negligence or not.

    Without prejudice to the provisions of the clauses above, in the unlikely event that the RCR is found to incur any liability in respect of any of the sessions, the total liability of the RCR in respect of any such e-learning session for any loss, liability or damage, howsoever caused, whether in contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence), under statute or in any other circumstances will be limited to the amount of monies receivable from the RCR’s insurers in respect of such loss, liability or damage (if any).

    Jurisdiction and applicable law

    The English courts will have exclusive jurisdiction over any claim arising from, or related to, the RCR e-learning hub although we retain the right to bring proceedings against you for breach of these conditions in your country of residence or any other relevant country.

    These terms of use and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with them or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales.


    The RCR may revise these terms of use at any time by amending this page. You are expected to check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes made, as they are binding on you.
