RAB COVID 19 Our Nations Message


Unfortunatly RAB was not able to carry out our valuable education work in visiting our ever growing nations from around the world.

To cvompensate we have enabled extra online projects such as:

  • Extra teleconference programs
  • Film Bank
  • RAB Library
  • Mentorship program
  • COVID 19 update page
  • TIDES
  • The RAB International Certificate in Radiology Fundamentals

This video was made by one of our younger members Isabella de Silva, to confirm our unwavering support to our recipient nations during the Covid 19 pandemic. We are all a part of the global RAB family.

Thank you to all our supportors, volunteers and sponsors.

Pounding the Pavement in Isolation - All for a Good Cause

Report by: Sam Hunnisett


Steven Bell - Thinking outside the isolation box, running a marathon in support of RAB

Support Steven and Donate

One of my early memories as a child was sitting on the side of St Kilda Road, between the Arts Centre and the Concert Hall in Melbourne, waiting for my Dad to run up to the finish line of the Melbourne marathon. I remember how happy I was when I was able to pick him out in the crowd of runners, looking exhausted but happy to have the finish line in sight. Quite a few years ago now I made a commitment to Dad to run a marathon before I was 40....a commitment I did not manage to keep for no really good reason. Last year I also said I would complete a marathon within 2019, and was well on track two times until a...

COVID-19 Hand Hygiene and Infection Control

Report by: Nadine Thompson


In our recent past RAB delivered an online lecture covering "Hand Hygiene and Infection Control" by Nadine Thompson and with the threat posed by COVID-19 we feel it important to release this lecture out of our members area for all to view. We encourage you to let others know of this lecture.

Infection control is a vital consideration for all healthcare workers. Radiology departments and practices have special considerations for infection control to protect their patients and themselves. This presentation will be based on information provided by Hand Hygiene Australia and provide useful and practical information on the importance of infection control and hand hygiene for staff working in radiology including some helpful hints of how to implement best practice.

Nadine is the Chief Radiographer at Sydney Adventist Hospital. She is a clinical lecturer at the University of Sydney Medical School and chair of the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy advanced practice advisory panel.

We believe the RAB/AMSIG collaboration video really captions these sentiments and emotions well. Please take a moment to watch it by clicking on the link, like and share it.

You too will be helping our work and reach.
