Working together, you and your patient can ACE every exam.
As a registered radiologic technologist, you’re a key member of the health care team. You’re an expert in radiologic procedures and are responsible for the accuracy and quality of medical imaging and radiation therapy procedures. As a result, it’s important that your patients know you’re educated and qualified and safety is your No. 1 priority.
That’s why we’ve developed the ACE campaign. ACE is an easy acronym to remind you to:
As part of the ACE campaign, ASRT is providing every member with materials to help them promote the profession and communicate with patients.
Every ASRT member will receive a fold-out poster that describes how R.T.s contribute to patient care. We encourage you to display the posters in your waiting room, dressing room and exam areas. It’s a great opportunity for you to promote your expertise to patients.
In addition, we’re giving every ASRT member a deck of ACE patient cards. The cards provide you with another opportunity to inform patients about your role as an R.T. Please give a card to your patients after their exams. They’ll appreciate knowing that their caregiver is educated in radiation protection, positioning techniques and patient care.
Visit www.asrt.org/ace to learn more about the campaign and order additional posters and patient cards.
The American Society of Radiologic Technologists represents more than 151,000 members who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy. The Society is the largest radiologic science association in the world. Its mission is to advance the medical imaging and radiation therapy profession and to enhance the quality of patient care.
