European Society of Radiology (ESR) and American College of Radiology (ACR) report of the 2015 global summit on radiological quality and safety



European Society of Radiology (ESR) and American College of Radiology (ACR) report of the 2015 global summit on radiological quality and safety



Insights Into Imaging 7(4): 481-484



The American College of Radiology (ACR) and the European Society of Radiology (ESR) held the second joint Global Summit on Radiological Quality and Safety on October 10-11, 2015 in Barcelona. The programme addressed the issues of safety, professional performance, practice improvement and customer service. Participants came from national and international radiological societies; partner medical societies; global organisations such as the International Atomic Energy Agency and the World Health Organisation; and patient advocacy groups. The objective was to exchange ideas and develop common strategies to improve and harmonise quality and safety in radiology on a global level. Participants debated and proposed improvement initiatives at the conclusion of the meeting. • Radiologists must adapt to demonstrate their value to the healthcare system. • Integration of quality and safety policies is crucial for our profession. • Excellent patient care includes good communication and direct involvement in clinical problem solving. • Culture is shifting towards clinical decision support tools for appropriate use of imaging. • "Big data" is a great opportunity for radiologists to improve the quality of patient care.
