    Overview:

    The Pediatric QIT Webinar on Radiation Safety will highlight the importance and implication of radiation exposure in particular for the pediatric population, and will cover radiation physics, biological effects of radiation exposure, as well as provide some examples of what can be done to reduce radiation exposure to patients and staff as well as providing examples of new technological advances that aid in reducing radiation exposure. Furthermore, the webinar will highlight recent work done on this subject in the pediatric cardiac population as well as summarizing the most important current multi-center QI initiatives in this area. For participants this will provide a good basis to explore how they can start radiation-specific quality improvement projects at their own institutions, as well as providing examples of what can be done locally to reduce radiation exposure to patients and staff.
