In recognition of our 100th anniversary, The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) has created a new Guide to Ethics in Imaging training module. We’re offering all Registered Technologists (R.T.s) one free continuing education credit when they view the video and complete a short quiz at the end.
The module features Liana Watson, ARRT CEO; Kellie Reynolds, ARRT Vice President of Compliance; and Ann Obergfell, former ARRT Trustee and current Associate Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs and Operations at Indiana University Fort Wayne. In the video, they share their insights and expertise on the importance of ethics in imaging.
“Our message to R.T.s is that we’re here to help,” says Watson. “This training module focuses on helping learners better understand how the principles of professional ethics connect to ARRT’s Standards of Ethics—and vice versa.”
The training includes information on ARRT’s mission, Equation of Excellence and Standards of Ethics, as well as about how these components support R.T.s and patients.
“We covered important information about ethics expectations,” says Reynolds. “We shared examples of some of the most common rule violations in medical imaging; the appropriate actions to take; and the processes involved if an ethics review is necessary.”
The training module is now available on ASRT.org/store. To gain access to the training:
