“Do you not find this job boring?” a question proposed by a patient to a radiographer according to a Facebook group posting which I read.
Despite the abundance of research evidence that indicates communication among health care team members influences the quality of working relationships, job satisfaction and that it profoundly impacts patient care and safety as the Mid Staffordshire Report showed; why are there still communication issues within the healthcare setting and multi-disciplinary team?
Clinical education is an important component of training for radiography students and it is essential that the transition to clinical placement particularly for first year students is successful. This is due to the implications that can arise when a student withdraws for the student and the associated university.
Feeling stressed? Is your department under staffed, are you over worked? Do you feel like there aren’t enough resources? The staff in your department never have time for CPD? Are your waiting lists always breaching? I think these are all common moans and groans that we, as radiographers can all relate to, along with other health care workers.
