Berit Björkman, a doctoral student at School of Health Sciences, successfully passed her part time the 25 th of May 2011.
The main purpose of Berit Björkman's research is to study children's and radiographer's perspective on acute radiographic examinations being performed with children in a Radiology Department.
Children's experience of going through a radiographic examination is rather unexplored, although most radiographers examine and interact with children on a daily basis. In order to provide high quality care that meets the needs of the patient, it is important to perform research focused upon the patient's experience of radiographic practice. The research is based on interviews and video observations, and the main focus is on pain, anxiety and the interaction between the children and radiographers.
