  1. The (Australian) paper discusses the need for a more formal way of encouraging all radiographers to provide a preliminary clinical evaluation (PCE). What is happening where you work in terms of image interpretation/evaluation?
  2. We know there are benefits to patient care with these kinds of activities – what kind of education should we put in place to encourage (all) enhanced roles and responsibilities?
  3. PCE and image matching are within scope of most DI/RTs. What steps can we take to help practitioners work to top of scope?
  4. What is the single biggest enabler in your workplace to working to top of scope?
