1 RADIOGRAPHY AND CLINICAL TECHNOLOGY NEWS Newsletter for the Radiography and Clinical Technology Board 2014/15 CHAIRPERSON S NOTE HIGHLIGHTS IN THIS ISSUE: Ms Mable Kekana Chairperson The term of this Board is gradually coming to an end. It is important that we start making plans for the new Board in terms of finalising some of the projects we started or carried on from the previous term. We also need to prepare for handover to ensure a gradual transition and continuity. As the Board we are now used to working together and have identified each other s skills, strengths and passions. Most of all, I value the spirit of support and teamwork that reigns in the Board. We are moving and achieving our strategic objectives because we work together. Thanks to all Board members and our administrative staff as well as the HPCSA top management. I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate Adv Tshepo Boikanyo on his appointment as the Chief Operations Officer of the HPCSA. As the Board, we have always appreciated the support and guidance we received from him as the head of the HPCSA s Legal Department. I would like to announce the retirement of Mrs Barbara van Stade, who was General Manager of the CPD, Records and Registrations Department. In her ten years at the HPCSA, she has been a valuable asset and always available to assist whenever practitioners contacted me with registration and CPD related challenges. On behalf of the RCT Board, we learnt a lot from her and are confident that she has imparted her wisdom to the staff in the department. In the past year, the Board had a number of opportunities to engage with the practitioners. We give special thanks to all radiographers and clinical technologists who attended the RCT Celebrations in Port Elizabeth, November 2013 and Bloemfontein, November The events were well attended and the interactions were of high standard. The questions raised in these meetings are taken into consideration and, in most cases; they also help in the identification of more objectives that the Board should embark on. Other interactions with practitioners took place during the HPCSA Road shows. We are grateful for the Public Relations Department at the HPCSA, under the management of Bertha Peters-Scheepers for organising these events. The events are meant to bridge the relationship gap between the HPCSA and the registered practitioners. The first road shows took place towards the end of The trend continued in mid The roadshows were held at different provinces as an attempt to reach the majority of the registered practitioners. At almost all of these events, there were always representatives and practitioners from the Board, ready to interact with the practitioners. It is one of our strategic objectives as the Board to ensure that we communicate effectively and continuously with the practitioners, and this was seen as just another opportunity. I extend my gratitude to all Board members who continuously sacrifice their times amid the demanding work schedules, to attend these events. Some of the major issues that the Board had to address in the past year were related to the incorrect registration of the different categories of clinical technologists. To rectify the problem, a task team was established. I am proud to say that the team worked through the whole list of registered practitioners, together with staff from the Department of Registrations and CPD to ensure that every practitioner was registered in the correct category in line with his or her qualifications. Congratulations to the team and thanks for the work well-done. Some more congratulations are extended to members of the Board. First to Professor Jamilla Adam for >>> p1 Clinical technology registration requirements resolved Framework for conduct of intimate examinations Guidelines for the use of fluoroscopy units New degrees in radiography Radiography and Clinical Technology Day 2013

2 her achievements and consequent appointments. Prof Adam was promoted to full professorship by the institution earlier in 2013 for her exceptional work and accomplishments in her department, the University as well nationally and internationally. Another member of the Board who is making us proud is Mrs Jenny Motto with the work she is doing outside the South African borders. She received an Award of Honour for her exemplary service to the radiography profession by the Society of Radiographers in Kenya (SORK) at the RASCO ( Radiographer s Scientific Conference) held in Mombasa. The Role extension project is continuing. The Board is hoping that the outcome of the study will provide more grounds and justifications to challenge all the obstacles that seem to be preventing radiographers in South Africa from growing professionally and enjoying the recognition and respect they deserve. The Board is continuing with its engagement with the Medical and Dental Board together with the Radiation Control Directorate. Some of the challenges which have been noted recently, relate to: Diagnostic Radiographers who are engaging in Ultrasound professional acts; Practitioners who are performing dynamic studies like Barium swallow and hysterosalpingograms on general radiography equipment, Practitioners who can make a request for the Computed Tomography procedures as well as to whether Mammography procedures should be performed where there is no radiologist present or not. The process of consultation is going on at the task team levels. Policy guidelines for Fluoroscopy and Computed Tomography have been finalised and will be made freely accessible by all registered practitioners on the website. 1 Congratulations to all the education institutions that obtained the approval of the Council for Higher Education to offer the new fouryear degrees in Radiography and Clinical Technology. Some of the Higher education institutions have started to offer the four-year degrees in The RCT Board is preparing documents together with the Legal Department of the HPCSA, to ensure that the qualifying graduates are registered accordingly. A message from the Legal Department is that a register cannot be created until such time that there are practitioners to be registered. As the Board we are also looking forward to see the more institutions start offering certificate courses and early exit Diagnostic Radiography and Clinical Technology qualifications. It is important that different categories of professionals are produced and registered to cater for the needs of the South African population. This is also an invitation to practitioners to engage in further studies as this is good for you as an individual to grow and will also be contributing to the growth of the professions under the ambit of the RCT Board. Ms Mable Kekana Chairperson

3 NEW DEGREES IN RADIOGRAPHY All Radiography qualifications offered in South Africa need to be approved by the Professional Board for Radiography and Clinical Technology, prior to implementation. The Professional Board for Radiography and Clinical Technology and the Council for Higher Education recently granted permission to the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and the Central University of Technology to offer a fouryear degree in all four disciplines viz Diagnostic Radiography, Radiotherapy, Ultrasound and Nuclear medicine. This is the dawn of a new era for the profession as graduates will now undergo four years of intensive training with a new focus on the challenges that modern health care brings. The Board would like to congratulate the two universities for being the first to apply for approval of these new qualifications. The four year degrees will bring Radiography qualifications in South Africa on par with that of first world countries like Australia and Canada, who also offer four year degree qualifications. Candidates will graduate at the level of an honours degree in Radiography after which they will be allowed to enroll for a Master s degree at a university of their choice. The new qualifications will ensure that candidates graduate with enhanced Radiographic com-petencies as well as having a thorough understanding of human rights and medical law, research and managerial skills. It is anticipated that the staggered implementation of these new degrees by various universities, will not result in a serious disruption in the delivering of community service radiographers as other universities are still preparing the submission of their degrees.

6 ENJOYING A GLASS TOO MANY EVERY NIGHT TO ESCAPE THE EVERYDAY STRESSORS? Long working hours, societal and family expectations, fear of failure, dysfunctional relationships and increasing debt are the perfect recipe for clutching out every now and then. Add to that a pre-existing or new medical and mental problem and you have a perfect recipe for a disaster. If you had to have a glass of wine every night to forget about the day, used scheduled medicine to sleep at night or was involved in an accident and you do not know how to cope with your disability, you might want to talk to the Health Committee Secretariat. The HPCSA realises that being a healthcare professional is one of the most stressful professions in the world. However help is available. The Council is responsible for ensuring that practitioners are fit to practice and are not impaired due to any physical or mental ill health. The Committee assesses and manages the impairment of students and healthcare practitioners. It employs a non-punitive approach to the rehabilitation of practitioners in a bid to ensure that a complete recovery is made where possible and the practitioner is able to optimise his or her work potential. As substance and alcohol abuse affects a practitioner s competence, judgment and performance, the Board is calling on practitioners to contact the Health Committee Secretariat for assistance, treatment and rehabilitation in order to work again as a highly esteemed practitioner. Self-referrals, referrals from colleagues, who are required in terms of the ethical rules to report such cases, and reporting by family members would enable the Health Committee to provide support to such practitioners and to act in protecting the interests of the public. Health Committee Secretariat Tel: CLINICAL TECHNOLOGY REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS RESOLVED Qualifying as a Clinical Technologist is an important personal achievement however, as a practitioner, there are several professional and ethical responsibilities as well as legal obligations. Registration with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) is not only a prerequisite for professional practice, but it is also a legal requirement to keep all personal details up to date at all times. Prior to 1 April 2002, Clinical Technologists qualified with a 5 National Diploma after three years of study at a formerly named Technikon, now called University of Technology. On completion of 12 months work in a registered training unit after qualifying, Clinical Technologists were allowed to register with the HPCSA as a qualified Clinical Technologist. In 1998 the B.Tech degree was in the early stages of being implemented at the Universities of Technology. However, the B.Tech degree was not compulsory for those Clinical Technologists who registered before 1 April 2002 and they were still regarded as Independent Practitioners. Some of these Clinical Technologists did however study further to obtain the B.Tech degree, although it made no difference to their registration at the HPCSA, or their ability to work independently at that stage. After 1 April 2002, the B.Tech degree was fully implemented at Universities of Technology. Technologists were registered in two different registers namely: Student Clinical Technologist (KTS); and Clinical Technologist (KT) >>> p6

7 In the categories: Undergraduate; Dependant / Supervised Practice; Independent Practice; and Private Practice In 2005 the HPCSA converted to a new computer software system. This created many challenges as unlike the previous registration and operating systems of the HPCSA, no provision was made with the new system for the different categories of registration. It was unable to distinguish between Clinical Technologists qualified prior to 1 April 2002 and those qualified thereafter. When the data was transferred to the new IT system, this presented a problem as it resulted in professionals qualified prior to 2002, now erroneously being registered under the category of Supervised Practice. Similarly many Clinical Technologists, who had obtained their National Diploma after 2002, were registered in the category Independent Practice in error. This incorrect registration caused great confusion because some newly qualified Clinical Technologists mistakenly assumed that they could work independently without any supervision and claim for clinical work done. In response to this confusion, the Radiography and Clinical Technology Board appointed a task team in November 2012 to address these issues. A resolution was made in January 2013 that: Clinical Technologists will now be registered in three different Registers, namely: Student Clinical Technologist (KTS); Clinical Technologist (KT); and Graduate Clinical Technologist (KTG) Within three main registration categories namely: Undergraduate; Supervised Practice; and Private Practice 1. Student Clinical Technologists are normally registered via their educational institution and register as a Student Clinical Technologist (KTS) in the category Student/Undergraduate; 2. Any individual who qualified as a Clinical Technologist (KT) on the old curriculum (with a National Diploma) and registered with the HPCSA before 1 April 2002 should be registered as a Clinical Technologist in the category Private Practice. This registration entitles an individual to register a Private Practice and obtain a practice number with the Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF) in order to claim from medical aids for services rendered; 3. Technologists who obtained a National Diploma after 1 April 2002 should be registered as a Clinical Technologist (KT) in the category Supervised Practice. These technologists are therefore not allowed to conduct a private practice and are thus prohibited to work without supervision or claim from medical aids for services rendered; and 4. A B.Tech degree is recognised as an additional qualification. Any Clinical Technologist who has obtained a B.Tech Degree will be registered as a Graduate Clinical Technologist (KTG) in the category Private Practice. This registration allows the individual to register a Private Practice and a practice number with the BHF in order to claim from medical aids for services rendered. After completing the requirements of each of the registration categories, the onus is on the individual to formally apply for registration in the next appropriate category and to ensure that their registration is correct. Please refer to the HPCSA website for more information on the documentation required. 6

8 FRAMEWORK FOR CONDUCT OF THE INTIMATE EXAMINATION Healthcare professionals registered with HPCSA are required to uphold prescribed standards of professional and ethical behaviour. Most healthcare practitioners, including Radiographers, Optometrists, Emergency Care practitioners, Physiotherapists and Medical Practitioners are sometimes required to conduct an intimate examination, for example a mammogram, eye examination in dim light, taking blood pressure using an arm cuff, listening to the chest with a stethoscope, etc. The majority of allegations relating to sexual misconduct are due to inadvertent touching. Conducting an intimate examination without overstepping the practitioner s boundary of privilege and power could be challenging. Therefore, communication with the patient is paramount and must be effective and clear. Practitioners must also be sensitive to the patient s cultural, social and religious believes. In light of the above, the Board would like to share the following guidelines for practitioners to follow when conducting intimate examinations. The Framework is reprinted with permission from Ames Dhai, Jillian Gardner, Yolande Guidozzi, Graham Howarth and Merryll Vorster. Framework for conduct of intimate examinations Ensure the intimate examination is necessary and will assist in the patient s care. Explain to the patient that an intimate examination needs to be done and why. Explain what the examination will involve. Obtain the patient s permission. Verbal permission and the co-operation of the patient to adopt an appropriate state of undress and position probably provides sufficient authorisation. Offer all patients who are to undergo intimate examination a chaperone, irrespective of the gender of the practitioner. Should the patient wish to have a chaperone, the presence of the chaperone and the chaperone s identity should be noted at the time. Should the patient decline a chaperone, this should be noted at the time. Should the patient decline the offer of a chaperone and the practitioner prefers to have one present, this should be communicated to the patient. If the patient still declines the offer of a chaperone, the practitioner should probably not perform the examination. Give the patient privacy to undress and dress. Adequate and appropriate draping should be used when the patient is undressed. Keep the discussion relevant and avoid unnecessary personal comments. Encourage questions and discussion.

9 GUIDELINES FOR THE USE OF FLUOROSCOPY UNITS Fluoroscopy is an imaging modality that provides real-time imaging. When used appropriately, it is useful for imaging internal structures and physiological systems. It is also used to guide certain interventional procedures. This equipment is not designed for checking the accuracy of positioning when performing general radiographic examinations. The guidelines below are aligned to the requirements of the South African Department of Health: Directorate: Radiation Control. 1. Fluoroscopic X-ray examinations should only be performed by physicians who have received formal training in fluoroscopic diagnostic procedures, such as radiologists. A qualified radiographer works with the radiologist or any other medical specialist by creating real-time images. These will include procedures in the radiology department as well as those in the operating theatre. Radiographers may not perform any fluoroscopy examinations, like the introduction of contrast media as it is outside their scope, but they may operate C-arm units in the operating theatre in collaboration with a specialist medical practitioner. 2. C-arm units should be operated by a radiologist or radiographer only for x-ray examinations in an operating theatre and /or dynamic studies. 3. Pulsed fluoroscopy should be used routinely as this will lower the dose to the patient by minimising screening time. 4. Fluoroscopy should not be used to check positioning in general radiography (e.g. skeletal, chest and abdomen imaging) to check for positioning. Although it may be argued that the patient dose received when using fluoroscopy is less than when repeating an examination, not all images will need to be repeated so patients will be receiving unnecessary radiation. Radiographers should practice accurate positioning techniques in order to avoid the need for repeat imaging. 5. Two basic principles of radiological protection as recommended by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) are justification of the practice and optimization of protection, therefore any examination performed using fluoroscopy should be ethically justified and optimum protection should be applied. 6. Children are more sensitive to ionising radiation than adults; therefore fluoroscopy should only be used if general radiography will not provide the required information. Protection of pediatric patients should be given utmost care and attention. 7. All screening times and radiation doses must be recorded for all examinations and kept for record purposes. This is a legal requirement. 8. A red warning light must be mounted outside the entrance to the fluoroscopy room. This light should only be activated when the x-ray beam is on (i.e. x-rays are being emitted). 9. Any person, who needs to stand in an unprotected area within the fluoroscopy room, should wear a protective lead apron with a lead equivalent of at least 0,25mm. It is preferable that all persons (excluding the patient) should stand behind a protective shield. This will exclude the personnel who are performing the surgical procedure. 10. Any person standing within one metre of the x-ray tube or patient while the x-ray unit is being operated at tube voltages above 100KV, should wear a lead protective apron of at least 0.35mm lead equivalence. 11. Where appropriate protective gloves that have a 0.35mm lead equivalence should be worn. It is also important that personnel who are involved in the surgical procedure have thyroid shields on as well. 8

10 RADIOGRAPHY AND CLINICAL TECHNOLOGY DAY 2013 The current Professional Board for Radiography and Clinical Technology was inaugurated in July One of the strategic objectives identified by the Board was to improve communication with stakeholders and enhance visibility and transparency of the Board. The Board undertook to embark on regional initiatives and that events such as the RCT Day Celebrations be used to share and report to professionals on issues of interest and importance in terms of their practise as practitioners. The Professional Board successfully organized the RCT day on 8 November This is the day to commemorate World Radiography Day which marks the discovery of X-radiation by William Roentgen in The Board invited healthcare practitioners registered within the ambit of the Board to celebrate contributions made by Radiographers and Clinical Technologist to the profession. The event was attended well and well received by those who attended. The theme of the workshop was know your Scope of Practice and that the following were part of the discussions: Overview of the RCT day; Overview of the HPCSA and Board structures; Progress of the Board in relations to Strategic Objectives; Role extension and role expansion in Radiography; Scope and the challenges for Clinical Technology and Radiography; and Legal processes to be followed in amending the Scope of practice. The Professional Board is confident that professionals registered under its ambit deliver quality health care service at all times however we are aware that professionals are in many instances challenged by ethical and legal issues and requirements. Please ensure that you do not miss the 2014 RCT Day celebrations in November
