September 14th, 2023 – Radiology and SPHM: A Perfect Marriage

Presented and recorded live September 14th, 2023 from 2 PM – 3 PM Eastern
This webinar is sponsored by Jamar Health Products and is FREE to attend.


Many safe patient handling and mobility (SPHM) practices are hospital focused and targeted at preventing patient handling injuries for nursing and rehabilitation staff. Radiology technologists are another group of healthcare workers who are also risk of sustaining patient handling injuries but have received minimal attention in SPHM. Some of their risks of injury are due to barriers from the medical diagnostic equipment (MDE) design and the lack of awareness of SPHM equipment available to assist patients with disabilities. At the same time, these barriers can cause difficulty for patients with disabilities from receiving routine diagnostic services or needed treatments. This presentation will discuss how SPHM can play an important role in enhancing the quality and safety in medical services provided by radiology technologists and received by patients with disabilities.

Objectives – After this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the unique patient handling challenges radiology technologists encounter and the impacts on safety and quality
  • Identify available SPHM technology for Radiology to enhance safety and quality for both staff and patients with disabilities
  • Discuss integrating SPHM practices in Radiology in hospital and ambulatory settings to enhance safety and quality
