IAEA Competition: Towards a Strong Radiation Safety Culture in Medicine

Publication Date: Mar 28th, 2019 22:07, Category: Associated Organisations Announcements


Radiation medical professionals and students can submit proposals to be included in an IAEA training program demonstrating a strong radiation safety culture in healthcare. The deadline for submissions is 30 April, and the top three participants will receive a travel grant to present their projects at the IAEA in Vienna at the launch of this training.

Medical professionals in diagnostic imaging, nuclear medicine and radiation therapy should select one of the traits and submit a proposal for innovative and engaging projects that can be portrayed digitally in photo essays, charts, videos or animations to help better convey the selected safety trait and illustrate positive change. They should include how the new practices can be successfully integrated into their regular working environment. The proposals will be reviewed by experts in radiation safety and safety culture.

The producers of the best proposals will join the first training course in January 2020 in Vienna. Their projects will become part of the training and will be shared around the world.



The contest is divided into two phases. In the first phase, medical professionals or students should submit an abstract and storyline.

In the second phase, selected participants will be contacted to produce digital representations of the selected project by 31 July.
