[en] In this article some of the measures taken at our own institution to control the radiation dose to staff are outlined and tentative estimates are made of the dose equivalent for staff engaged in similar radiation work throughout the country. From these estimates, some conclusions are drawn concerning the level of risk to such staff resulting from their work, and these conclusions are set against the numbers of investigations and treatments carried out.

[en] Full text: A basic strategy for the development of a new organization is the selection of personnel, especially if it is an institute that offers a technological and professional innovation. This work aims to define specific profiles for the Centre for Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Therapy, Bariloche, and to design a plan for selecting and training professionals. (author
[en] Enhancing the teaching skills of radiation therapists is of benefit to both students and therapists and is ultimately important for patient outcomes. However, there is a paucity of evidence-based interventions for improving the teaching skills of radiation therapists. An intervention was developed to tackle this initiative. In accordance with a local, quality improvement initiative, a two-part workshop was developed for radiation therapists to improve their ability to (1) effectively communicate with students, (2) provide meaningful feedback to students, (3) increase consistency in conducting competency assessments, and (4) increase an understanding of cultural competency as it pertains to both teaching and health care more broadly.
[en] Background and purposeThe need for radiation oncologists and other radiation oncology (RO) professionals to lead quality improvement activities and contribute to shaping the future of our specialty is self-evident. Leadership knowledge, skills and behaviours, like other competencies, can be learned (Blumenthal et al., 2012). The objective of this study was to define a globally applicable competency set specific to radiation oncology for the CanMEDS Leader Role (Frank et al., 2015).
[en] To summarize important talking points from a 2016 symposium focusing on real-world challenges to advancing precision medicine in radiation oncology, and to help radiation oncologists navigate the practical challenges of precision, radiation oncology.
[en] Full text: What does it mean to move knowledge about teaching into the global medical education community in ways that demonstrate complex understandings of diversity? How might phronesis offer a unifying and essential habit of the mind that guides the work of medical educators in today's global context? The impetus to increase diversity in medical imaging programmes or build and maintain competent and sustainable human resources in outreach settings for ethical reasons must include a parallel commitment to develop professionals and programmes adequately prepared and supported to meet the learning needs encountered in the diverse context. Drawing on the Aristotelian concept of phronesis, a context-dependent way of being in which one exhibits practical wisdom and ethics, the presenter will explore ways of cultivating capacity that may lead to phronetic action to address the needs of diverse learners.
