In evaluating the future face of radiography practice, a historical review of developments to date has been undertaken, together with a look at the changes which will face the profession into the new millennium.
This article focuses on changing healthcare provision, changing radiographic practice, the changing face of the healthcare professions and the changing focus of education and training.
The opportunities for further development of the profession are explored along with an overview of some of the possible barriers to progress.
Our contention is that radiographers are more than adequately prepared for a rapidly changing future.
To ensure that they are prepared, however, it is essential for the profession to adopt an appropriate vision, formulate an achievable strategy, and promote a culture of professional practice which is able to respond adequately to the problems facing its continued existence.
