First announcement v00

  1. 1. First Announcement v00 03 August 2012 WORKSHOPRadiation risk communication in paediatric imaging Organized by the World health Organization (WHO) Hosted by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) nd Bonn, Germany, 2 December 2012 2012-08-033
  2. 2. First Announcement v00 03 August 2012 The World Health Organization (WHO) is conducting a Global Initiative on RadiationSafety in Health Care Settings to mobilize the health sector towards safer and effective use ofradiation in medicine. Focusing on public health aspects related to the risks and benefits of theuse of radiation in medicine, the Global Initiative includes activities in the areas of radiation riskassessment, management and communication. Health professionals have generally a low awareness of the level of radiation doses indifferent medical procedures as well as of the magnitude of the radiation-related health risks. Anarea of special concern is the unnecessary use of radiation when clinical evaluation or otherimaging modalities could provide an accurate diagnosis. Justification of procedures is particularly critical in paediatric health care, since childrenare especially vulnerable to environmental threats and have a longer life-span to develop long-term radiation-induced health effects like cancer. There is a need to promote a focusededucational campaign to empower health professionals as well as patients and their families tomake informed decisions about the use of radiation for medical imaging procedures. Thisincludes the development of tools for radiation risk communication. Building on the outcomes of a previous workshop held in Geneva in 2010 this secondWorkshop on Radiation Risk Communication in Paediatric Imaging is being held on 2ndDecember 2012 in Bonn Germany with the following main objectives: to test a tool for radiation risk communication in paediatric imaging; to identify gaps/needs and collect stakeholders’ feedback, questions and concerns; and to improve informational, motivational and persuasive messages tailored to different audiences for effective radiation risk communication in this field. . The workshop will start at 09:00h and close at 17:00h of 2 December 2012. The registration is free of charge but places are limited so, pre-registration is encouraged to secure a place and to receive further relevant information and background material.
