Abstract [en]

Introduction: Radiographers are today facing various challenges as the technical equipment is getting more advanced and the examinations encounter patients with complex medical records. Furthermore, in the Swedish context, radiology departments are struggling with shortage of both radiologists and radiographers. Following, this has led to a work-situation where radiologists are not always in place during emergency duty, and radiographers’are taking on additional responsibility. Hence, there is a need for further and deeper knowledge within areas that previously was undertaken solely by radiologists. One such area is reporting; and a 7.5 ECTS course was designed and offered to registered radiographers. The aim was to investigate radiographer’s experience of their work-performance and contribution to the clinic after attending this particular course in reporting.

Methods: The study had a qualitative design based on individual and semi-structured interviews with 34 radiographers who attended the course in reporting the fall of 2013, 2014 and 2015. The interviews were transcribed verbatim and analysed using qualitative content analysis.

Results: The analysis resulted in a comprehensive theme: Width and depth in the professional practice. This theme embraced three categories: Increased knowledge, Professional recognition, Work satisfaction.

Conclusions: Increased knowledge in reporting is necessary to meet the demands from the diagnostic departments. A course in reporting on advanced level is a tool for deeper understanding of the medical image. However, there will still be challenges and constraints during the path to be a fully specialized radiographer in reporting. There is a need for more courses in this area on the second and third level.
