Radiation exposure has been proven to be detrimental to both the patients’ health and the technicians. If exposed to too much radiation, it can eventually cause cancer. Radiation deals more with the patient since they are the ones being tested to see what is wrong and where the pain is coming from. The technicians are suppose to take all safety precautions to protect both themselves and the patients’.
The article – supported with other studies – state that evaluation of the programs is not an easy task owing to the complex and qualitative nature of leadership development programs (Hardacre et al., 2010). The paper reports the collected data that covered in average 1,600 people of healthcare staff - first line clinical managers to executive directors – during 13 years time span. The large population that was reviewed in a long-term duration added a strong trustworthiness to the author’s argument. In addition, the author backed his statements and analytic data with peer-reviewed
In 2016, when the name Mayo Clinic is used in conversation between medical professionals and patients alike, it is more than likely used in a way that reflects complete medical confidence or satisfaction regardless of the interaction. The Mayo Clinic was conceived through honorable roots and with the best intentions in 1889 when a faithful servant of God approached a humble doctor with the idea to construct a hospital. (Peters, Casale, Halyard, Keith, Frey, Bunkers, & Caubet, 2014.) What grew from this mutual idea has blossomed into one of the most robust and identifiable medical institutions on the planet. The success can be largely attributed to its business model which is understood to be the reason so many doctors or other medical professionals

A skilled leader should acknowledge to explore new idea because recognize what is the pro and cons in shared leadership to enhance colleagues will benefit to patients and organization .
From the general surgeon referring a critically ill patient for a cholecystostomy, embolisation, or gastrostomy; the surgical oncologist referring for biliary drainage, or ablation; or the vascular surgeon referring the “complicated” patient, I was intrigued by the breadth of multimodal, multidisciplinary procedures and dynamic skills of a single specialty. The following July, I began my training in small radiology residency program (2 residents per year) primarily based at a busy community hospital; which currently holds the claim as the only NYC hospital with dual trauma certification (Level 1 Adult and Level 2 Pediatrics) by the American College of Surgeons, as well as being a regional stroke center. This unique training environment has given me the opportunity to build on the strong clinical and procedural foundation fomented during my surgical training. I have been privileged with an abundance of hands-on experience. Additionally, I have gained the trust of my attendings and technologists, and perform many procedures independently. All the while, I continue to arrive early and stay late to make sure my patients are optimally prepared for surgery and doing well post-operatively. One of the most rewarding experiences during this time has been the continuity of care I have been able to establish and maintain throughout my training. Often times, I’m able to initially read the presenting imaging studies from the emergency department, consult and perform the necessary procedure or biopsy during the subsequent days, and present the clinical course, imaging, and discuss treatment options during multidisciplinary conferences, such as tumor
The protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 mandates that starting January 1, 2017, the use of the CDSS is required for diagnostic imaging exams such as CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine and PET . Healthcare providers must get education and trained for the advanced CDSS technology to comply with the mandate by the U.S. federal government. The hospital management needs to select a clinical leader and ‘Clinical Champions’ to have successful of CDSS implementation for these technical staffs who require to use. The clinical champions usually Physician Champion (PC) and play a very important role in the CDSS implementation. “The PC helps to “lead the charge” and acts as the “Change Agent” for the CDS intervention. In fact, leadership is widely considered as important as the quality of the technology.” . Effective leadership from leaders and clinical champions will spend time to work with teams, to have CDSS education and training and to support workflow from the beginning stage to the end stage
Management and leadership styles strategically utilized throughout Facility B included democratic approaches, which focused on exceptionally strong teamwork, where employees felt empowered to report issues and concerns to maintain resident safety. Facility B exhibited high-performance teams with innovative practices, and employees were rewarded for their contributions and also offered career advancement opportunities. Leadership principles incorporating management styles which support staff, encourage suggestions, and create a culture which utilizes teams to reach common goals result in high-quality care provided to patients.
Managing in a matrix organization- As a leader, I manage needs, expectations, motivations and competing priorities to achieve clinical delivery within the company matrix structure.
Knowledge on leadership concepts in nursing is significant, in that, it help to guide our practice. When we are delegating duties and supervising over other staff members, we are all demonstrating our leadership abilities. “Leaders are those individuals who are out front, taking risks, attempting to achieve shared goals, and inspiring others to action. Those individuals who choose to follow a leader do so by choice, not because they have to” Marquis & Houston (2015). In this assignment, a leadership concept will be selected and related to the information on communication in this week’s discussion.
designing care with the patient and family is a true skills set and cultural attribute that adds
During simulation, detailed imaging scans show the location of a patient’s tumor and the normal areas around it. These scans are usually computed tomography (CT) scans, but they can also include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), and ultrasound scans. After simulation, the radiation oncologist then determines the exact area that will be treated, the total radiation dose that will be delivered to the tumor, how much dose will be allowed for the normal tissues around the tumor, and the safest angles (paths) for radiation delivery.
However, there are a few studies that have indicated the benefits of its use mainly in the healthcare and public sector areas (Bovaird, 2008). For instance, a study conducted by Hanson and Ford (2010) found that leaders in a hospital laboratory were the frontline workers and customer service representatives, as opposed to the formal director and administrators. For this reason, Duedue to the role customer service representatives and frontline workers play in the laboratory setting in the information flow process, they are very influential (Hanson & Ford, 2010). Above all, theThe results of this study tie back to research by Goldstein et al. (2010), reinforcing the point that leadership is not a person taking charge or being in charge but rather practical actions, relationships, and
The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), who is referred to as the Commission, has issued many reports providing advice on radiological protection and safety in medicine. Publication 73 was a general overview for the addressed area. ICRP Publication 73 acts as a clarification of the recommendation radiological protection system. The system mentioned refers to the 1990 Recommendation of the International Commission on Radiological Protection. This report is mainly addressed to physicians and physicist who engaged in activities regarding medical radiology. This also includes medical diagnostic, nuclear medicine, dentistry, and radiotherapy.
