Abstract

Interventional radiology is a clinical speciality based primarily on image-guided intervention. To fulfil a clinical role, the interventional radiologist (IR) has a responsibility, not only on the procedure itself but also on the entire pathway of patient management. Comprehensive patient care is often a complex process, and science is only part of that. IR should have the ability to build a strong rapport with patients and look after all aspects surrounding the disease process until the problem is resolved or alternative path is pursued. This art of medicine involves understanding the patient’s main complaint, an ability to make the right diagnosis, knowledge and experience in formulating and delivering a cost effective and safe management plan. The management plan should include preparing the patient, delivering treatment, dealing with complications, establishing the right channels of communication with patients as well as other related professional colleagues, and overseeing ancillary help and support from other specialities. It is critical to offer a longitudinal care that encompasses follow up plan, managing patient and family expectations, maintaining trust and keeping robust record system.

Clinical practice requires technical and non-technical skills. This course will focus only on non-technical aspects of clinical care which is not procedure specific.
