Attention colleagues performing obstetrics ultrasound, kindly find notice for your attention.
The ultrasound examination offered by the HPCSA Professional Board for Radiography and Clinical Technology (PBRCT) includes obstetrics, gynaecology, abdomen, small parts and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Of concern it that the examination will exclude those radiographers who provide obstetric ultrasound services at district level health facilities. SORSA therefore requested the HPCSA Professional Board for Radiography and Clinical Technology (PBRCT) to urgently consider the negative impact this exclusion would have on service delivery of obstetric ultrasound to the general public.
WHO-ISRRT anti-smoking awareness campaign
As radiographers we have first hand experiences of the impact that smoking has on the health of individuals. In keeping with the theory of behaviour change and professionalism, radiographers should ideally assume a role modelling position by advocating for the elimination of smoking habits among our patients and colleagues. The aim of this campaign is to support the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) by educating and resourcing institutions offering radiography programmes with the view of reducing the impact of tobacco use in the profession as a whole.
