Our Patient Care in Radiology CE course offers a comprehensive overview of patient care in the radiology department. It covers the role of the radiologic technologist in taking clinical histories and explains the importance of patient interactions to help you improve your communication skills and your interactions with patients.

The course describes a range of immobilization techniques including immobilization techniques in a variety of settings and reduction of patient radiation exposure through the using proper immobilization methods. It also covers other important topics in patient care for the radiology technologist, such as signs and symptoms and procedures for handling various medical emergencies, appropriate principles of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the use and placement of lines and tubes, indications for and types of oxygen therapy, the role of each of the four vital signs in maintaining homeostasis, and the normal range for each of the vital sign.

Patient Care in Radiology also address the chain of infection and the role and responsibilities of technologists in prevention of transmission. It covers the various classifications of drugs and drug nomenclature, the actions, indications, and precautions related to various drugs, important points in drug administration. The course also differentiates between confidential and non-confidential information and the privacy and security requirements in a radiologic setting, lists the types and need for informed consent, and explains the ethics and medical law related to patient management and interaction.
