INTRODUCTION: People with dementia have difficulties with memory, executive functions and behaviour which pose a challenge during diagnostic imaging. There is abundant literature on the radiographic diagnosis of dementia; however, there is little research on how to best to care for people with dementia during imaging procedures. The aim of this study is to explore the experiences of dementia care in imaging departments through the perspectives of people with dementia, carers, radiographers and student radiographers...

INTRODUCTION: The Francis Report recommended an increased focus on compassion in healthcare, and recognition and non-judgmental acceptance of diversity is fundamental in compassionate patient care. The aim of this study was to achieve a wider understanding of diversity that includes individual patient needs, expectations, perceptions and feelings during diagnostic imaging. METHODS: Using thirty-four semi-structured interviews with individual patients, this qualitative study explored their experiences of undergoing diagnostic radiography examinations and asked what compassionate care meant to them and how it is perceived and manifested in the brief, task-focussed and highly technical diagnostic projection imaging encounter...

PURPOSE: The production of patient information leaflets (PILs) for diverse patient cohorts is challenging. This study developed varicocele and fluoroscopy guided joint injection (FLGJI) procedural PILs. METHODOLOGY: Evidence-based PILs were developed, providing radiological procedural information - preparation, explanation of interventional procedures and aftercare. PIL readability was tested via validated readability programs: Flesch Kincaid and Flesch ease reading score methods...

This article outlines the importance of cultural competence for student radiographers. The UK population is becoming more diverse in terms of ethnicity, the population is also made up of a much wider age range, varying genders and people of different sexual orientation, physical abilities and faiths. Radiographers need to be able to communicate with and care for people of all backgrounds. Radiographers need to be able to build relationships with service users based on mutual respect to provide optimum care despite personal differences...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this article is to highlight the importance of assessing health literacy in the radiotherapy department and to discuss the challenges in practice. The paper aims to identify factors to facilitate improved access to, and understanding of, health information for patients with low health literacy. METHODS: A literature search was conducted using PubMed, CINAHL, Medline and Cochrane library. Non English language studies and non-healthcare related studies were excluded...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study is to take a longitudinal approach to assess the value of an in-house program developed in a Singapore hospital over a two year period. METHODS: Radiographers (n = 48) consented to take part in the study. The control group (CG: n = 40) continued with normal working practice whilst the remaining 'additional training group' (ATG: n = 8) participated in the hospital's in-house image interpretation program. Upon completion, all participants were assessed using a RadBench® test bank...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to compare radiography curricula, teaching/learning strategies, skill development, clinical practice outcomes and research development delivered by four European educational institutions. METHODS: This study was carried out in two phases: the first focused on curricula analysis; the second involved online questionnaires to ascertain data from two key-informants: students who had recently completed their bachelor thesis and teaching-staff...

INTRODUCTION: Adherence to standard infection control precautions (SICP) by radiographers is critical in combating healthcare associated infections (HAIs). Therefore, radiographers need to have adequate knowledge and practices of infection control if they are to contain the magnitude of HAIs. METHODS: Purposive, all-inclusive sampling was used to recruit 62 radiographers from four government referral hospital in Malawi. Radiographers' knowledge and practices of infection control were determined using a self-administered questionnaire...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of the survey was to identify current practice of the use of gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) in the wake of recent reports on gadolinium deposition in the brain following repeated administration of GBCAs. METHOD: A total of 13 facilities in Ghana with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) departments were contacted via email with a two-page questionnaire. RESULTS: A response rate of 69.2% (n = 9) was achieved. Gadodiamide (Omniscan) was the most commonly used GBCA...

INTRODUCTION: Simulation based education is advancing, but is there a role for it in Diagnostic Radiography? The aim of this literature review was to understand the use of simulation within conventional diagnostic radiography education to raise awareness of this pedagogical approach. Objectives were to identify the prevalence and stage of delivery in education; understand the variation of simulation and learning objectives informing its use; and review the perceptions of those using simulation in education and practice...

INTRODUCTION: Consultant posts were developed to strengthen strategic leadership whilst maintaining front line service responsibilities and clinical expertise. The nursing profession has attempted to develop tools to enable individuals to evaluate their own practice and consider relevant measurable outcomes. This study evaluated the feasibility of transferring such a nursing 'toolkit' to another health profession. METHOD: This evaluation was structured around a one-day workshop where a nurse consultant impact toolkit was appraised and tested within the context of consultant radiographic practice...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this service evaluation project was to assess the quality of clinical details provided in radiological requests. METHODS: A retrospective review of adult inpatient and emergency department radiological requests over a seven-day period was performed, using the local Clinical Radiological Information System (CRIS). Requests for plain film, CT, MRI and Ultrasound were assessed for the inclusion of a clinical question, lateralisation/localisation of signs or symptoms if required, and relevant past medical/surgical history if available...

D Palmer, B Snaith, M A Harris
INTRODUCTION: Over the last 2 decades the assistant radiographer practitioner (ARP) role has been introduced into NHS diagnostic imaging departments as a strategy to expand the workforce and create capacity. This skill mix initiative has not been implemented in a standardised way and there is limited knowledge of the current role scope within general radiography (X-Ray). METHOD: An electronic survey of ARPs working within UK diagnostic imaging departments was conducted...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The performance of mammography screening programmes is focussed mainly on breast cancer detection rates. However, when the benefits and risks of mammography are considered, the risk of radiation-induced cancer is calculated for only the examined breast using Mean Glandular Dose (MGD). The risk from radiation during mammography is often described as low or minimal. This study aims to evaluate the effective lifetime risk from full field digital mammography (FFDM) for a number of national screening programmes...
