Radiotherapy ‘pause and check’ posters published
A range of ‘Have you paused and checked?’ posters have been published to serve as a handy reminder for therapeutic radiographers.
The posters are designed in a PDF format to allow for easy downloading and printing for display in the department as required. Sections of text can be edited to reflect local protocols.
There are four posters in the series:
- IR(ME)R checklist for referrers about to refer a patient
- IR(ME)R checklist for operators about to CT a patient
- IR(ME)R checklist for operators about to treat a patient
- IR(ME)R checklist for operators about to treat a simulator planned patient
Each poster is designed to act as a ready reminder of the checks that need to be made when referring or treating a patient.
To be able to edit the sections of text that can be changed, the PDFs must be opened using the Adobe Acrobat Reader DC application. This is a free application that is standard on many PCs and Apple Mac computers.
The downloadable pdfs below are set for A4 printing but they can also be printed A3 size by using the scaling feature in PC printer software that allows a user to choose what size they want a document to be printed.
