PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE

The establishment and maintenance of a Safety Culture in medical imaging and radiation therapy is an essential requirement to ensure the safety of patients, the public and fellow colleagues and other staff members of the healthcare team.

The ISRRT supports radiographers and radiological technologists in this task bearing in mind that the establishment and maintenance of Safety Culture is primarily a management responsibility and that everyone employed in the imaging and therapy fields has a particular role to play to ensure that safety culture is maintained.

The ISRRT will be providing helpful guides to promote Safety Culture.
