    Help Needed with WIN European Radiation Safety Survey

    November 23, 2010

    Thanks to the help of WIN member Dr. Marie Claude Morice and CERC, the European Cardiovascular Research Center, WIN Co-Chair Dr. Alaide Chieffo is currently conducting a survey on radiation safety in cath labs around Europe. The survey is a follow up to a similar survey WIN conducted last year as grounds for its next publication, due out in February of 2011. The European version of the survey is an effort to determine details on the different laws and behavior throughout Europe as they relate to radiation safety in the cath lab, especially concerning cancer risk and other occupational diseases. The survey is intended for female and male healthcare providers, both physcians and non-physicians, who work in a cath lab. Survey results will be used as a pilot study to gather an appropriate sample size, with findings presented to EAPCI leadership in hopes of expanding the survey's reach to a larger European population.

    Please encourage your staff to participate in this very important survey effort through the following link:
