The Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (ASMIRT) have identified that there is a gap in the literature detailing Occupational Work Health and Safety (OWHS) issues for radiographers, mammographers, radiation therapists and nuclear medicine technologists in the Australian clinical environment.
The purpose of the research is to identify the leading causes of work health and safety issues in particular musculoskeletal issues for Australian medical radiation practitioners. This study will investigate current opinions and attitudes towards Occupational Work Health and Safety issues, enabling ASMIRT to provide recommendations for improved practice in the workplace.
This project is being conducted by the ASMIRT ergonomics working party in collaboration with Curtin University. If you have questions about the project please contact Min Ku (Professional Standards Manager from ASMIRT) on Min.Ku@asmirt.org or Georgia Halkett from Curtin University on G.Halkett@curtin.edu.au
You are invited to participate in this research study through both a 10–15-minute survey, and if interested a subsequent 1-hour focus group (dates to be determined). This will provide valuable insight into current opinions and attitudes towards Occupational Work Health and Safety issues in the workplace.
