Within the framework of the Technical Cooperation Projects of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Radiation on Medicine, supported by Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid al Maktoum Award for Medical Sciences, and organized by Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and the IAEA, the workshop for Referring Physicians on Patient Referral Guidelines has started today. The workshop provides 4.5 CME hours accredited by the DHA.
 
The 4-days workshop is held at Latifa Hospital, Dubai, and AL Ain Hospital, Abou Dhabi, with the participation of the IAEA’s expert Prof. Richard Mendelson, Consultant Radiologist, Royal Perth Hospital, Australia, and the attendance of around 70 radiologists, physicians and technicians.
 
This was stated by Mr. Abdullah bin Souqat, the Executive Director of Hamdan Medical Award. He praised the program which aims at raising the awareness of specialists towards the need for justification of medical exposure in diagnostic imaging, and for the optimization of radiation protection for patients.
 
“Holding such an important program goes in line with the tireless efforts exerted within the UAE to improve the healthcare sector’s competitiveness on the international level, through its commitment to a number of important factors including the implementation of the highest international safety standards for patients and professionals.
 
It is worthy to mention that within the framework of the cooperation with the IAEA to improve the referral guidelines in that field of medicine within the UAE hospitals, the workshop reviews the experiences of Latifa Hospital in Pediatric Referral guidelines and of Rashid Hospital in Adult Referral guidelines.
