“See something, say something”

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation only

Abstract

Interactive Workshop: As an APHRA registered diagnostic radiographer, if we identify something urgent or unexpected in a medical image, we are required to take appropriate and timely action to ensure the immediate management of the patient/client. This is reflected in Domain 1.7 of the MRPBA professional capabilities. This interactive workshop will explore the role of preliminary image evaluation (PIE) within this context and will provide you with an opportunity to practice identification and communication of urgent and unexpected findings in general radiography and computed tomography.

What will delegates learn from the workshop?
- Gain understanding of our responsibilities and role within “see something, say something”
- Explore approaches to communicating urgent and unexpected findings
- Examine preliminary image evaluation (PIE) and the need to develop a systematic approach to image interpretation
- Practice identifying urgent and unexpected findings across a range of anonymised planar radiography cases and computed tomography

OtherThe 2022 Mid North Coast Imaging and Therapy Conference - "Koality of Life: recalibrate / rejuvenate / reconnect" will be held on 03 September 2022 at Charles Sturt University, Port Macquarie. This conference was put on hold, like many events in the last couple of years, due to the Covid pandemic. Our region has also faced its fair share of hardships with not just the global pandemic, but floods and fires too. The aim of this conference is to get people back together, with a particular focus on a "person-centred approach" to healthcare delivery, putting patients and practitioners at the centre of the service. In addition to this, the Mid North Coast is a hub for the ageing retiree population, so papers focused on aged care would also be welcome. Come spend the weekend in beautiful Port Macquarie, connecting with friends and other professionals.


We encourage all MRPs and students to submit an abstract for consideration to present at Mid North Coast Imaging and Therapy Conference 2022. We are anticipating a thought provoking and exciting day with presentations by all disciplines that will support the development and well-being of patients and professionals.



The theme for the 2022 Mid North Coast Imaging and Therapy Conference is "Koality of Life". The conference will be a time to recalibrate, rejuvenate and reconnect.
