PARTICIPATE IN RESEARCH SURVEYS

AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY OF MEDICAL IMAGING AND RADIATION THERAPY

CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR PROFESSION
Participate in research surveys




Research is one of the foundation stones of the Medical Radiations Profession. It underpins the high-quality care Medical Radiation Practitioners (MRPs) deliver on a daily basis. The ASMIRT Research Committee are committed to supporting and strengthening the conduct of research amongst all MRPs.  

By participating in research surveys, your input will be valuable to those not just at ASMIRT, but your profession too.


Current survey opportunities


Occupational Work Health and Safety (OWHS) issues for Australian Medical Radiation Practitioners.


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) or Georgia Halkett from Curtin University.

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.

Curtin University Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) has approved this study (HREC number HRE2022-0344).



Adaptive Radiation Therapy – Perceptions of Radiation Oncology Staff


We are seeking practicing radiation therapists, radiation oncology medical physicists and radiation oncologists/registrars currently practicing within Australia to complete the above survey.

This survey will take approximately 10 to 20 minutes to complete, and will help inform the current adaptive practices within Australia, and identify barriers and enablers to implementation of adaptive radiation therapy.

For further information, please contact Glen Newman, Principal Investigator glen.newman@health.qld.gov.au
