Do No Harm: Making Radiology Safe and Effective

August 13, 2022

Radiology services are highly complex and require special consideration, especially since staff often underestimate its perils. The equipment is dangerous – even when not being used – and there are huge consequences if it is misused.

There is a critical need to implement quality standards and ensure that staff consistently follow developed protocols. There are two parts to this: staff must safely use the equipment, but then it must be used effectively to treat the patient. How do doctors ensure accurate interpretation? Most importantly, how do we ensure a continuity of care that is standardized across patients?

In this webinar, we probe important questions:

  • What are the specific requirements for staff and patient safety?
  • Why certain elements are critical for safety, such as layout?
  • How accreditation and other quality tools can help in risk mitigation?
