The AHRQ PSNet Collection comprises an extensive selection of resources relevant to the patient safety community. These resources come in a variety of formats, including literature, research, tools, and Web sites. Resources are identified using the National Library of Medicine’s Medline database, various news and content aggregators, and the expertise of the AHRQ PSNet editorial and technical teams.
Moore QT, Bruno MA. Radiol Technol. 2023;94(6):409-418.
Fostering a culture of safety is a key objective across all clinical areas, including radiology. This secondary analysis of survey data found that radiologists working night shifts and shifts exceeding 12 hours have poor perceptions of teamwork and of leadership actions concerning radiation safety.
Brown SD, Bruno MA, Shyu JY, et al. Radiology. 2019;293:30-35.
This commentary reviews general aspects of the disclosure movement, supportive evidence, and challenges associated with liability concerns. The authors discuss barriers unique to radiology that have hindered acceptance of the practice and highlight how communication-and-resolution programs can support radiologist participation in disclosure conversations.
Abujudeh H, Kaewlai R, Shaqdan K, et al. American Journal of Roentgenology. 2017;208.
This review summarizes key principles of high quality care and how they can be applied to augment radiology practice. Recommended safety improvement strategies included plan-do-study-act cycles, change management, and balanced scorecards.
Mansouri M, Aran S, Harvey HB, et al. J Magn Reson Imaging. 2016;43:998-1007.
This analysis of incident reports related to magnetic resonance imaging found that, similar to other settings, incident reports are infrequent, and most do not result in patient harm. Common reasons for reports were associated with test orders, adverse drug reactions, and safety of intravenous medication administration. Given known under-reporting in voluntary reporting systems, future work should incorporate other safety hazard detection methods.
