Educational Sessions

Finding Joy in Stressful Situations
Dr. Dawn McNeil, RT (R) (M), RDMS, RVT, CRA, FASRT
Program Coordinator Radiologic Technology
Rasmussen University Ocala

Radiology Management can often be very stressful. The everyday rigor of managing patient safety, employee satisfaction, stress, burnout, and even ergonomics can lead to a joyless work environment. Add in the recent pandemic and staff shortages, and it can become difficult to find happiness to go to work each day. The purpose of this course is to identify ways to understand stressors and develop ways to overcome them while also finding joy in your work environment again. Hopefully that joy will spill into your personal life and help you remember the goal of delivering quality patient care through diagnostic imaging.

Imaging Career Ladders: Navigating Your Way
Denise Vander Werf
Senior Administrator, Imaging & Diagnostics

A career ladder is a formal process within an organization that allows employees to advance their careers to higher levels of salary, responsibility or authority. Once employees meet certain criteria, they are eligible to move into higher-level roles. This session will explore career ladders for imaging.

Leadership Woes and Why's - "The Great Resignation and Quiet Quitting"
Brenda DeBastiani, MBA, CRA, FAHRA, RT(R)
Director of Imaging
Bravera Health Spring Hill

Imaging leaders today are facing staffing challenges that are unique. “Quiet quitting” and “The Great Resignation” are terms that are new to leaders. We have learned about the importance of coaching and mentoring our employees in the past, but mentorship is now essential to combat The Great Resignation and Quiet Quitting.

Is the Healthcare Future Now?
Luann J Culbreth, CRA, FAHRA, FACHE
Sr Director Corporate Advocacy & Outreach
United Imaging
Leaders, be ready. Very recently the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that COVID-19 is now an established ongoing health issue and therefore no longer a public health emergency of international concern. The United States (US) also marked the end of the Federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) Declaration. As the US healthcare market rebalances from the pandemic, leaders in all sectors are awakening to new normals and future realities. This session will review several key areas that are top of mind for healthcare leaders today. Realizing a future not foreseen, wondering is the future now.
