Radiation safety culture in medicine

WHO, IRPA and IOMP are conducting a joint project on Radiation Safety Culture in Medicine open to national/regional and international partners. The purpose of this project is the development of a framework document to support the establishment and maintenance of a radiation safety culture in health-care facilities, as an integral component of safety culture programmes in medical settings. The project comprises a series of workshops to collect feedback from key stakeholders in different regions of the world including:

Regional Workshop on Radiation Protection Culture in Medicine for Latin American countries (Buenos Aires, Argentina, April 2015)

Regional European Workshop on Radiation Protection Culture in Medicine (Geneva, Switzerland, December 2015)

Similar workshops in other regions during 2016-2017 for African, Eastern-Mediterranean and Asian countries are also planned.
