Abstract [en]

The radiography profession in Sweden is young but has been rapidly changing over the recent years. The developing profession has led to radiographers facing various challenges related to responsibility for both the technical equipment and patient care in the periradiographic process. Further education is urgent to keep up with the arising level of competence required. The study aimed to explore radiographer's experience of their work performance and contribution to the clinic after accomplishing a 7.5 ECTS postgraduate course in appendicular reporting. The study has a qualitative design, based on individual and semistructured interviews with 34 registered radiographers from all parts of Sweden. The results revealed that the course led to “Breadth and depth in the professional practice.” This was seen by a perceived increased knowledge, more professional recognition, and a perceived increased work satisfaction. The postgraduate course in reporting was a valuable experience for the attending radiographers and contributed both to their personal and professional development.
