Analysis of the Radiation Safety Climate in the Hybrid Angiography Suite

2019-08-27 21:46:50 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study aims to measure the radiation safety climate in the hybrid angiography suite using self-assessment and to investigate the relationship of radiation safety climate with their self-reported safety behaviors.

The hypothesis is that a radiation safety climate does exist and can be measured using self-assessment. Additionally, it is expected that the radiation safety climate positively influences radiation safety behaviors.

Description

Radiation safety in the hybrid angiography suite is a primordial safety component which is relevant for endovascular team members and patients. To date, many interventions which aim to improve radiation safety habits of an endovascular team focus on improving technology and team radiation safety knowledge. Safety literature has indicated that a safety climate can be identified as the shared perceptions of team members or workers about the safety in their workspace and that this safety climate is closely related to safety behaviors and outcomes. In endovascular specialties, the concept of a radiation safety climate remains unexplored. Therefore, this study aims to measure the radiation safety climate in a diverse pool of endovascular team members from different hospitals, using self-assessment questionnaires and to investigate the relationship of radiation safety climate with their self-reported safety behaviors.
