New Competition: Towards a Strong Radiation Safety Culture in Medicine
Radiation medical professionals and students can submit proposals to be included in an IAEA training program demonstrating a strong radiation safety culture in healthcare. The deadline for submissions is 30 April, and the top three participants will receive a travel grant to present their projects at the IAEA in Vienna at the launch of this training.
Safety culture is about people, their attitudes, and how they shape everyday relationships in their team and with patients. In medicine, it is a prerequisite for establishing well-functioning institutions that place safety of patients first. Errors in radiology, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy can be prevented if an institution has a strong safety culture.
